Award-winning artist Jackie Morris' dream-like illustrations provide an enchanting interpretation of James Mayhew's lyrical poem: I wish I had a little boat, Far away I'd drift and float, where the great blue whales leap, and pirate ships lie sunken deep. Rhyming text will appeal to the very young who are not yet reading and older children to read for themselves. This book is suitable for the National Curriculum Predictable Structure & Patterned Language criterion for KS1. Appealing verse encourages children to use their imaginations, an ideal bedtime read, with beautiful illustrations and high production values - cloth spine and gold embossing. Jackie Morris runs art workshops for primary schools. Her workshops involve slide shows, painting demos and creating murals. She also reads the children stories and talks about how books are made and has recently run a workshop at the Edinburgh International Festival. This book includes instructions on how to make your own paper boat. Suitable for National Curriculum Predictable Structure & Patterned Language criterion for KS1, this book encourages children to use their imaginations.
