Book Sharing Monday

Our book this week is 'Earth-Wise, Poems About Our World' by Wendy Cooling.

Both Hannah and i love poetry, and this book has some of the most amazing mix of poems about the earth ranging from Emily Dickinson to Native American with everything inbetween! Our particular favourite is the thought provoking 'Mummy, Oh Mummy'

'Mummy, Oh Mummy, what's this pollution
That everyone's talking about?'
Pollution's the mess that the country is in,
That we'd all be far better without.
It's the factories belching their fumes in the air,
And the beaches all covered with tar,
Now throw all those sweet papers into the bushes
Before we get back in the car.'......
