Out and About: A First Book of Poems
In this wonderful collection of poems, by best-loved and Kate Greenaway Medal-winner, Shirley Hughes, Katie and her little brother Olly go out and about, romping through the changing seasons. They take pleasure in the different elements and weather conditions - sunshine, wind, rain, mist and even snow. From the joys of the seaside to the miseries of the sickbed, this exuberant volume captures to perfection the world of childhood.
