heroes of the children’s book: Iona Opie and Rosemary Wells


I could put something in this space so why not this…? It won’t interest everyone, but…

I read and sang the rhymes from this book and others like it again and again (and again… and again…) when Sam was little, starting way before he could make much sense of them. Swinging in the hammock was the best place.

You know the sort of thing…

Humpty Dumpty sat on the wall
Humpty Dumpty had a great fall
All the king’s horses
And all the king’s men
Couldn’t put Humpty together again.

The Opies – amazing collectorss of the lore and language of childhood. And Rosemary Wells – surprising, colourful, quirky, warm picutres.
