Dad, don’t go to Work

An unpretentious, enjoyable collection of 23 poems about ordinary life in an ordinary family.
A little cricket boy
With a big cricket bat
A little cricket ball
And a big cricket hat
Encouraging to read of normal, loving family activities. Nothing arty-crafty. Good line and colour pictures by Meg Jordi. It carries warm recommendations from both Gcina Mhlophe and Sindiwe Magona. Quiet reassuring subjects.
And then the sweetest noise
The sound of Mummy’s voice
I hear it soft and light
As I doze off at night
