This humorous and incisive collection of poetry celebrates the joys of childhood and of being a father. Paul Benjamin captures in verse his delight at sharing the world with his son. From family outings to cricket on the lawn, sharing time with each other and the heartache of saying goodbye, Dad, don’t go to work will be loved by parents and children alike. Ideal for reading aloud or quiet enjoyment, this collection will nurture lovers of life, children and words.
