Wee Three: A Mother’s Love in Verse by Marta Moran-Bishop with Helen Springer Moran Illustrations by Hazel Mitchell

Standard

wee three“Wee Three” is a charming and delightful collection of poems for children. Marta Moran-Bishop truly captures the voice and curiosity of a little child.

 The detailed pen and ink illustrations by Hazel Mitchell, bring the text alive. Her lovely, delicate artwork puts me in mind of my favorite A.A. Milne books as a child. The watercolor on the front is colorful and full of sunshine.

“Wee Three” is the “Now We Are Six” of the 21st Century. I loved the poems and illustrations in this beautiful little book. My granddaughter, who is three, particularly loved “Upside Down Land”. My favorites are “Lonely” and “When I’m A Lady”.

This is a wonderful book to share with children and awaken their love of poetry. I highly recommend “Wee Three” for children of all ages—and adults who are children at heart.
