Take Off Your Brave: The World through the Eyes of a Preschool Poet

We rated this book:


Children view the world with a sense of whimsy and wonder while constantly questioning the reason or purpose for life’s mysteries. Take Off Your Brave: The World through the Eyes of a Preschool Poet is a compelling collection of stories written by a perceptive four year old child, Nadim. These poems involve topics such as love, school, flowers, trains, friendship, sea life, underground, memories, magic, moments, moms, bath time, fear, and bravery. A few of the poems were written with help from his sister, Taleen and Nadim’s preschool classmates. The addition of these sweet and whimsical poems add range to this enjoyable anthology.

The introduction, written by Nadim’s mother explains how these insightful thoughts began. Nadim became enamored with the poetry once he began learning the “rules”, understanding different styles, and ultimately being able to express his thoughts and emotions. Nadim, like many others initially felt inhibited by poetry, thinking it needed to rhyme. Once he discovered that poetry is about self-expression, he began writing these delightful thoughts. This book will inspire preschool children to write their own poetry and share their thoughts on age-appropriate topics.
