Mountains to Sea Festival 2018 – Hopscotch in the Sky Wed 21st Mar 2018
Hopscotch in the Sky takes children on a magical poetic journey through the seasons of the year, from ice creams to Christmas trees, flying grannies to reading mermaids, haiku to rhyming verse. Funny and touching, sweet and sharp, Lucinda Jacob’s poems are full of life and verve. The collection itself features a rainbow of enchanting illustration by award-winning artist Lauren O’Neill, winner of the Children’s Books Ireland Award for Illustration in 2016. An accompanying e book, The Hopscotch in the Sky Poetry Kit, is free to download, introducing children to the poetic forms used in the book and chock-full of ideas to encourage readers to try their hand at writing their own poems. It will be especially helpful also to teachers who would like to include writing poetry as a classroom activity with their pupils.
Poetry from the collection will be read by Lucinda and set to music and performed by Enda Reilly.
