Childhood is considered one of the most important stages in a person’s life. This is because it is the time wherein one learns about the basic concepts in life - these include family, love, life and death - that are learned at this stage. That is why it is extremely important for a child to learn the right things through proper care and education. In “LION FOOD” (published by Trafford Publishing) author Mary Margaret Ann Hines has created a collection of poems designed to help cultivate a child’s sense of wonder.
“LION FOOD” is a collection of poems compiled by the author throughout the years. Using her talents as a graphic artist and writer she has created a beautiful blend of art and literature that captures the essence of childish innocence. This beautifully illustrated picture book contains a myriad of poems accompanied by matching illustrations that will surely feed a child’s sense of wonder and excitement. The poems are all whimsically inventive and give a colorful panache to the illustrations. The illustrations themselves are provided by the author and her mother, who is also a talented graphic artist.
The poems found here are all specifically written to tackle issues most children face. They address them in a fun yet constructive manner.
