Editor’s Choice in the Children’s Books Ireland Reading Guide 2017

‘Mesmerising poems for and about childhood… these poems are at once timeless and contemporary… A wise and beautiful collection that every household should own’ – Amanda Bell, CBI Reading Guide

‘An inspiring and diverse collection that encourages readers to observe and record what they see, hear, smell, feel and taste. No doubt readers will want to put pen to paper after Lucinda Jacob’s marvellous collection that celebrates the ordinary, and acts as a reminder that simple things can often be extraordinary, especially when the experience is shared. A wonderful collection of poems to activate your senses and make note of the changing seasons and the wonder that surrounds us. Hopscotch in the Sky is a collection to be cherished and will initiate much conversation and creativity, as well as inspire readers and budding poets to venture outside.’ – RTEjr Bookclub
