The Pond Orchestra and Other Poems
by Leslie Brazier Smit

What happens in the forests and fields when we are not looking?

Can a baby goat and a frog become friends?

Are the sounds you hear by the pond made by an orchestra of woodland critters?

The Pond Orchestra and Other Poems is a sweet and amusing collection of simple poems involving a cast of animal characters getting up to various shenanigans. Here adventures take place, unusual friendships happen, and we get to visit a world filled with kindness, cooperation, and humour. The Pond Orchestra is perfect reading for young children aged 4-6, especially those learning to read and others who want to share the adventures with them.
