Meet poet and author June Perkins as she talks about her book of poetry for children Magic Fish Dreaming.
The poems were inspired by her years living in Far North Queensland where she was mesmerised by its natural beauty, intrigued by its inhabitants and learnt some wisdom through its distinctive weather and people.
The poems are perfect for sharing with young children and for inspiring them to go “A hunting for a poem” of their own.
Read the poems to your children and share information about June’s writing process to inspire writing of their own.
