The title of Tomorrow Land captures the wonder and joy of imagination in the what if?
Sisters Marg Gibbs and Kim Roberts have penned more than 40 poems, arranged in themes of time sequence, to enthuse young readers and their families. Read aloud poems include, The Hairies, Platform Pigeon, Future Teachers, and The Boy who Laughed his Head off.
Inspiration comes from visits to the library at midnight, a house bursting with words, a magic finger, Egyptian mummies, a mermaid who casts a spell, a curious boy with a curious mind and a wormy wedding.
Kim and Marg are both educators, writers, and lovers of books. Since they were kids growing up in Brisbane, they enjoyed reading comics, making crafts, and playing neighbourhood games. These days they like reading to grandchildren, photography, and visiting Op-Shops.
The poems are ideal from Prep to year 6 with clever collages, pen and ink and digital artwork. Enjoy the real and imagined world of this diverse collection.
Marg Gibbs writes poems and stories for children. Her themes include communication, friendship, nature, family and courage. She has contributed to magazines, anthologies and the local Hinterland Times in Mapleton. Marg’s love of verse began with Dylan Thomas, Under Milkwood and extended into her long teaching career in secondary education.
