STOP PRESS: Since our first lockdown in Spring 2020, I’ve been creating special ‘learning through laughter, rhythm and rhyme’ nature poem videos to help you and your kids learn more about the minibeasts and birds you’re likely to see where you are. These videos include lots of poems from Flying High! Watch these videos here.
And here are a few videos bring to life some of the poems in my Flying High! book. You can find more such videos here.
Let’s start with a journey through the bird year:
Here’s my standalone Christmas Robin poem:
This is my Mistle Thrush poem, ‘Incubation, Incubation, Incubation’, performed at Birdfair 2018.
Here’s a video of the Green Woodpecker that inspired the Green Woodpecker poem in my book, Flying High! Discover the poetry in British birds. (N.B. I’m not the world’s best video-er of birds – but the footage here will give you an idea of the bird that inspired this poem.)
Here’s a video of the Goldfinches that inspired the Goldfinch poem in my book, Flying High! Discover the poetry in British birds.
Here I am performing the House Sparrow poem from the book live, at the York Festival of Ideas launch of Flying High!
