My Luve’s Like a Red, Red Rose
O my Luve’s like a red, red rose,
That’s newly sprung in June;
O my Luve’s like the melodie
That’s sweetly play’d in tune.
In this beautifully illustrated picture-book version of Burns’ classic poem, the lyrics have been re-imagined to explore the special love between parent and child. A mother and daughter feature in everyday scenes such as playing in a garden, splashing in the sea and going to nursery, each inspired by Burns’ eloquent words.
With delightful, heart-warming illustrations by Ruchi Mhasane, this expressive new picture book is the perfect way to share Burns’ with very young children. It is also an ideal Mother’s Day or Valentine’s Day gift.
'The illustrator has brought a lot of energy and joy to the poem with the choice of soft colours and the slightly hazy effect you get from watercolours... a visual feast to match the melodic sense of the words. This is a perfect book for any adult to share with their own much loved little one.'
'This version of Robert Burns' famous poem has been given a new, and beautiful, twist as it depicts the special love between a parent and child... This book has given me a whole new perspective on a poem I have known my whole life, and that's the magic of this picture book. '
