Written by Paul Benjamin and illustrated by Meg Jordi, this little book contains a collection of poems for young children and is all South African.The prose gently reminds us as parents, of what is important to those who share our homes. Taken on a journey from the Kirstenbosch gardens to making toast for breakfast , this gem of a book brings the family back into focus.Children gravitate towards these pages, studying the words and the pictures again and again. My nine-year old even began quoting the verses.‘Dad, Don’t go to Work’ is a reminder of all things gentle and good.
