Take Off Your Brave
This utterly wonderful book was written by Nadim Ismail, at age 4. It’s illustrated by his mum, Yasmeen.
Nadim’s mum asked a poetry teacher for some advice on how to introduce pre-schoolers to poems, and this book is a collection of Nadim’s answers to different topics and prompts he and his mum discussed together.
The result is both literarily impressive in its own right, and also really inspiring for any other families who would like to try the same. The poems are short, accessible and will delight children much older than four also. Nadim’s style is uplifting, heart warming and the perfect accompaniment to Poetry Teatime. This is a great book to start with if you’d like to incorporate poetry into your day.
Yasmeen Ismail is a Dublin born illustrator and animator, now based in Bristol England.
