Take Off Your Brave by Nadim illustrated by Yasmeen Ismail

 Take Off Your Brave
by Nadim (Age 4) and illustrated by Yasmeen Ismail

Everybody has love.
Even baddies.

The poems in this book beautifully capture how a four-year-old sees the world – a world of rainbows, glitter and magical boxes; a world of nursery, hometime and cuddles with Mum. They make for joyful reading and, paired with a foreword from poet and teacher Kate Clanchy and wonderful pictures by Yasmeen Ismail, are an invitation for young readers to join in the fun... By turns funny and charming, gentle and zany, Take Off Your Brave shows that poetry is for everyone – no matter how little you are!
