About the author:
Dr Audrey Coatesworth is a wife, mother and grandmother and a retired English Consultant Psychiatrist. She qualified as a doctor in 1962 from Edinburgh University Medical School.
She now writes poetry for children, to encourage the development of values which she considers to be essential for a fulfilling and happy life, such as kindness, sharing, caring, endeavour, and courage.
These values, she believes, should be taught by example from the parents/carers and thus be learned as the core values which guide the decisions made in later life.
Poems only edition
This book has 78 poems, but, to save the cost, it is being printed without any illustrations. The poems are the same as in 'Growing Up', Illustrated version.
Some of the verses telll meaningful stories. All have a message and many contain humour. Others show how wisdom, pleasure, and growth can spring from the simplest and most natural things within a busy and materialistic world.
Dr Audrey Coatesworth writes from her concern for children, but these poems do not patronise children and the effect is never threatening or negative. On the contrary, she learning takes place in a safe and manageable context.
The collection of poems is written from her experience and knowledge and aims to encourage values such as kindness, courage, sharing and caring. Children can read them for themselves. If adults read them, either parents, carers or teachers, then Dr Coatesworth would prefer that they do so without explanation or analysis unless instigated by the child/children. The poems speak for themselves.
