Enthralling Young Minds with Great Literature A beautiful and charming children’s poetry book awaits readers in poet-author John Headstream’s brilliant anthology of Bright Stories and Little Literature for Children.
News-Antique.com - Jan 12,2010 - Merkel, TX (Release Date) – From religious to inspirational to comedy to children’s material, this poetry collection by rising author John Headstream is sure to touch the minds and hearts of both young and old readers. Poetry that appeals to kindergarten students and college folks alike, Bright Stories and Little Literature for Children has covered a myriad of themes that inspire and entertain.
This delightful little œuvre delicately encapsulates the joy and carefree nature of a long-lost childhood. This is not poetry to be analyzed, but poetry to be read aloud—to a child or grandchild. This is poetry unbound, cavorting and running through the fields with its hair let down. The sparkling flow of verse is almost Dadaist in its twists and turns, leaping from one facet to another, unconstrained by rules and conventions. Upon occasion, a darker note creeps in, but only for a moment before the natural joie de vivre of the writer returns us to sunnier prospects. The delight of childhood and the joy of an untarnished, not-yet-cynical outlook shine through these pages.
Fun and educational, insightful and thoughtful, this poetry anthology is a great addition to every child’s library. This book can be purchased online through www.Amazon.com or www.DorranceBookstores.com.
