Comments about One Minute Till Bedtime:
This book is to dip into and enjoy time and time again with your little ones. Great for reading aloud, for family sharing, for school and library 'storytimes' ! It features lots of great children's poets from across the world, including quite a few Australians! Funny, clever, touching, lyrical, there's something for everyone in this collection of new, original poetry for children. Suitable for a wide range of ages, from 2 to 10. Gorgeously illustrated and produced too, this book will become a classic.
