Novato, CA, May 12, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- Barbara Bryan’s new collection of poetry, Holiday Poems for Children, published by Outskirts Press, takes young readers on a rhymed tour of the most loved holidays of the year in order to introduce her juvenile audience to the holidays, their history and the characters associated with them.
The twenty poems and full color illustrations in this collection offer young readers an entertaining introduction to Valentine’s Day, St. Patrick’s Day, Easter, Thanksgiving and Christmas. Leprechauns, and of course, Santa Claus, populate these lines of rhymed verse that help children remember each holiday by playing the game of repeating the fun-to-say lines.
Designed to enlighten children on the true significance of these traditional holidays, which for many have now become merely a day off, Holiday Poems for Children can be used not only as a teaching tool itself, but as a means for prompting further discussion about the importance of these age old celebrations and for enhancing a child’s appreciation of them.
Bryan’s collection of imaginative verse and charming illustrations honors the most loved holidays and provides a treasury of rhymed narratives about them which young children and young readers alike will want to go over time and time again.
Holiday Poems for Children is available on-line in paperback through Amazon and Barnes and Noble and at www.outskirtspress.com/buybooks for a maximum trade discount in quantities of ten or more.
