"THERE IS A BIT OF MAGIC ON EACH PAGE, THE KIND OF MAGIC OF DAYS GONE BY..." WEE THREE: A MOTHER'S LOVE IN VERSE BY HELEN SPRINGER MORAN & MARTA MORAN BISHOP


A book of short poems/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 cha rming, 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. About the Author: Marta Moran Bishop has fond memories growing up in rural Northern Minnesota. Her grandmother, Helen Springer Moran, also shares memories of raising her children in Washington, D.C.; together, they share seventy years of memories, dating back to the year 1924. 


Wee Three: A Mother's Love in Verse

"Wee Three" is a charming and delightful collection of poems for children. Marta Moran-Bishop truly captures the voice and curiosity of a little child.

The detailed pen and ink illustrations by Hazel Mitchell, bring the text alive. Her lovely, delicate artwork puts me in mind of my favorite A.A. Milne books as a child. The watercolor on the front is colorful and full of sunshine.

"Wee Three" is the "Now We Are Six" of the 21st Century. I loved the poems and illustrations in this beautiful little book. My granddaughter, who is three, particularly loved "Upside Down Land". My favorites are "Lonely" and "When I'm A Lady".

This is a wonderful book to share with children and awaken their love of poetry. I highly recommend "Wee Three" for children of all ages--and adults who are children at heart.
