Come All You Little Persons

Publisher: Faber & Faber

Review

All the earth’s children, wherever they’re from, are invited to join nature’s special dance of life. The little sun-person, wearing her glittering tiara, meets the tiny bat-person in her starry cloak of the night. Dressed in her feathered cape, the young bird-person joins the little fish-person, whose shimmering blue coat is made of scales. Everyone is welcome to come, dressed just as they are, from sky, sea, river, lake and forest. Planet earth has room for everyone.

Captivating and vibrant illustrations by Jessica Courtney-Tickle complement the lyrical text in this joyous, inclusive story by celebrated poet John Agard. Perfect for reading aloud at bedtime, this book is a celebration of childhood and the natural world in all its rich diversity.
