Poem-in-Your-Pocket Day

April 30th is Poem-in-Your-Pocket Day.
We celebrated our first PIYP last year with teeny, tiny felt envelopes
so this year our only task was to change up the poems.
Since we're working with Gnomes & Fairies this week, it works out well that these tiny letters can be delivered through Fairy Mail!

When O was born, a friend in Shanghai gifted us with 'Here's a Little Poem'; the best book of poetry on our shelves. It combines a collection of short poems geared for children, with illustrations from Polly Dunbar, making it a modern masterpiece!

Mum is having a baby!
I'm shocked, I'm all at sea!
What's she want another one for?
What's the matter with me?!
