Let Me Be Me

Poetry collection, Let Me Be Me by Frances Bildner, demonstrates her genuine passion for encouraging children to grow and develop through unhindered creativity and play. Having spent a lifetime promoting the power of play and creating art, Frances Bildner is also author of The Adventures of Four Creative Wiz Kids – All Aboard the Chocolate Bar. Each of her books provide a pertinent and important reminder of why children just need to be.

Written in exciting verse, and told from a child’s perspective, Let Me Be Me offers reflective messaging for those adults reading to their kids about keeping adult involvement in childhood play to a minimum to encourage emotional and social growth. It stresses the importance of play, friendships imagination and even advocates messy time!

Filled with colour and beautifully illustrated by Kris Lilliman, it is sure to enchant both children and adults alike. Let Me Be Me offers magic and literary fuel to encourage today’s children to embrace their imaginations and creative spirit; and share with parents and care givers why such freedom is important and needs to be prioritised.
