Dr. Tamara Montgomery, co-author of the 4 Calabash Books listed on this website, and her husband Cliff Montgomery, collaborated to publish an excellent new children’s book, Fish, Flowers and Furries: Poems for Curious Children Batik. It is now available on Amazon as an eBook.
The wonderful book is a charming collection of
3 counting poems for children between the ages of three and eight. Illustrated in her unique batik style, five little fishies go swimming in the deep blue sea, five little flowers become a May Day bouquet, and five little mice get into mischief while a kitty cat playfully keeps interrupting their feast. A delightful way to introduce poetry and counting to young children.
Tamara both wrote and illustrated the book. Below is a sample page.
