Newborn – Kate Clanchy

This was a very sweet collection of poems about the early days of motherhood. From the waiting of late pregnancy through to toddlerhood.

The early poems capture well the overwhelming nature of a newborn baby and how fragile and helpless both mother and baby are, and then this develops into a relationship where both parties are busier and happier in a love of balloons and very visual poems.
