The poetry book Limehaven: Poems for my grandparents has “lots of possibilities for English teachers” according to a recent review in The School Librarian. The book draws on childhood memories and celebrates the special bond between grandparents and children.
Reviewer Susan Elkin found the poetry collection “affectionate, poignant and compelling” and described it as “an excellent springboard for students writing about their own memories and reflections.”
As an author, this is music to my ears! I’m always delighted when my poems inspire other people to write and would love it if the book were used in this way.
The School Librarian is the School Library Association’s quarterly journal. Subscribers can find Susan’s review on p118 in Vol 66, No 2.
