REVIEWS: Once again Annette Kosseris has captured the essence of make-believe that is so vital for the growth and development of young minds. Through the language of these very modern poems and plays young children can readly enter into new worlds of wonder and delight. The poems can be used by individuals, small groups or whole classes and can even be shared in the home environment.

They fill a gap that opens up after children have soaked up traditional nursery rhymes and tales and will enrich the learning experiences particularly of preschoolers and infants classes in schools. This very attractive book is a must for both home and school libraries, not just to sit on a shelf, but to be used and enjoyed by anyone who is a child at heart.

Early exposure to written and spoken language makes positive contributions to the development of language and literacy. Vocabulary is enhanced when children hear new words used in context, when they experience the use of idiomatic language and when they have opportunities to play with language and sound.

Furthermore, research into learning suggests that exposure to rhyme and rhythm during the early years facilitates children's success in learning to read. This attractively presented volume fulfils all of thse criteria.
