Can You Hear Us?: A collection of poems centred on listening to the voices of children, their thoughts and reflections (Paperback)
The collection of poems in this book seeks to give a voice to the emotions and thoughts of children who are often seen but not heard. Their stories are sometimes filled with hopes and fears but also of dreams of a bright future. These poems are intended to raise awareness amongst parents, carers and everyone working with children on the importance of listening to the voice of the child.
