Lorraine Marwood, Celebrating Australia: a year in poetry,  Walker Books,  1 January 2015,  $16.95(pbk),  128pp.,  ISBN 978 1 925081 022

Beginning with New Year and wending its way through Easter, Bastille Day, Ramadan, United Nations Day and a round up of weddings, parties and a lullaby, this neat little compendium has a wealth of upbeat messages to read and share.  Rich language, unexpected points of view, sympathetic illustrations and black and white photos make this a great starter for younger readers setting out to become writers.  Diwali, Grandparents Day and Halloween all add up to a must have in classrooms and home libraries.
