Description

Little Island Books and Poetry Ireland invite you to celebrate the launch of Hopscotch in the Sky, poems for children by Lucinda Jacob illustrated by Lauren O'Neill. Launch by award-winning author Jennifer Johnston with music from Enda Reilly.

From ice creams to Christmas trees, flying grannies to reading mermaids, haiku to rhyming verse, Hopscotch in the Sky takes children on a magical poetic journey through the seasons of the year. Funny and touching, sweet and sharp, Lucinda Jacob's poems are full of life and verve.

With a rainbow of enchanting illustration by award-winning artist Lauren O’Neill, winner of the Children’s Books Ireland Award for Illustration in 2016.

An accompanying ebook, The Hopscotch in the Sky Poetry Kit, is free to download, introducing children to the poetic forms used in the book and chock-full of ideas to encourage readers to try their hand at writing their own poems. It will be especially helpful also to teachers who would like to include writing poetry as a classroom activity with their pupils.
