A book of short stories written in verse from a child's perspective that can be read and enjoyed by young and old alike. "Marta Moran Bishop is stunningly talented. This wonderful book is not only charming, but it holds a bit of magic on each page ... the kind of magic of days gone by. The beautifully rendered prose urges us to remember, to close our eyes and revisit slower days, childhood days, when there were no cell phones or computers to distract us from seeing the wonders in nature and the world of make-believe..." - Beth Hoffman, Author of NY Times Best Seller, Saving CeeCee Honeycutt "...Throughout the pages of Wee Three, author Marta Moran Bishop takes the reader on a poetic trip back in time to the simpler, carefree years of our youth, when nothing was more important than chasing bumblebees or taking jovial walks through the snow...
Kudos to Bishop for highlighting the essence of innocence in such fun-filled, comprehensive fashion." - Wendy Paulson - Apex Reviews Recapture the pure joy of life when one's imagination was the key to play.
"Wee Three" is a wonderful collection of poems that will inspire children's imaginations. These poems are written in rhyming verse and will delight readers of any age.
As a child, I grew up roaming the farm and spent much time playing and working outside, so I especially enjoyed the poems about plants and animals. These poems do a splendid job of evoking childhood memories, and today's children can certainly benefit from simple, old fashioned fun.
I loved the poem about chicken pox and realized that my own young daughters will never catch this once common childhood disease. It is these little things in life that can be the most important, and I believe that Ms. Bishop has captured the essence of childhood with this sweet collection. The poems are catchy and make reading them an excellent exercise for early readers. Most of the poems are relatively short, so even the most fidgety children can sit still to read or listen to one of these entertaining poems. Though short in length, these poems are long on content and are a great read for all children, or even adults who once were children. Check out "Wee Three", and you won't be disappointed!
