Sweeter and emotionally safer verse for the very young comes from the prolific British writer and illustrator Shirley Hughes. “Out and About: A First Book of Poems” is full of breezes and sunshine.
—The Wall Street Journal
This first book of poems is perfect for reading aloud and for a search through the pictures for lively kids, dogs, squirrels and birds.
Hughes’s pen-and-watercolor illustrations, the stars of this show, are deliciously full of motion…her approach is gentle, humorous, old-fashioned, full of human character.
—The Boston Globe
Young readers and listeners will be able to relate to these outings. Cadence, meter, and rhyme long to be read aloud.
