Why This Poetry Book?
Confidence in Children
Globally there is an urgent need for books that reach children on their level in confidence, and 21 award-winning poets, writers and experts have come together on a wonderful variety of excellent and beautifully crafted poems on the theme of confidence and self-esteem for children. Each writer donated 1-3 poems to the cause. People have been calling the contributors “the inspired movement”.
The teacher/parent or child can also read the very personal revelations generously shared by each poet as to how issues of self-esteem and self-confidence have appeared in each of their lives. Some poems are for the reader to decide, and some poets have used power questions in the book to get the child thinking or doing.
In addition there is also a valuable journal of power questions at the end of the poetry book to use everyday for self- confidence and self-esteem.
The book is aimed at children themselves and/or via parents/teachers or carers. We feel this theme really matters to children and can be accessed more easily through poetry. The poetry book is from the heart, as we stronglly believe in its very important premise.
