Reaching the Stars – first review from Lovereading4kids
Reaching the Stars by Jan Dean, me, and Michaela Morgan, cover art by Steph Says Hello.
We have had our first review by Andrea Reece from Lovereading4kids – and it’s a lovely one! Thank you, Andrea!
New poems by three of our brightest and liveliest poets are gathered together in this anthology which celebrates women and girls, lots of them. The lives of the really famous – Malala, Frida Kahlo, Amy Johnson, Hillary Rodham Clinton – are discussed, the roles of women in fairy tales debated, and the achievements of women whose names we’ll never learn acknowledged too. The poem styles are as varied as the book’s subjects, and there are poems to make you laugh, to make you angry, to make you think. It’s a sparkling collection, inspiring and empowering. Buy copies for all the young people in your life. ~ Andrea Reece
