Blow a kiss, catch a kiss when we are apart.
Blow a kiss, catch a kiss put it in your heart.
From Eye Caterpillars to The Journey Game, and from Dancing Families to Dreamtime, Blow a Kiss, Catch a Kiss is beautifully illustrated collection of 44 fun and heart-warming poems from award-winning children’s poet Joseph Coelho, designed to be shared together.
‘The idea behind the book was to create a series of modern baby action poems. As much as I’m a fan of ‘ring a ring o roses’ and ‘the wheels on the bus’ I wanted to create rhymes and ditties that kids could relate to now. So, in Blow a Kiss, Catch a Kiss there are poems about car journeys and using screens and riding in lifts and the sights of the city and going around the shops. Everyday things that everyday kids do. It was my family’s own love of silly rhymes and wordplay that paved the way for me to become a writer so, I can’t wait to share this book with you all and hopefully inspire some more little poets and readers’ – Joseph Coelho, Children’s Laureate 2022-2024
