Walker Books, 2011. ISBN 978 1 921720 61 1.
Note on the Door is a book of poetry aimed at children and I would recommend it for children aged 10+ to adults. Lorraine Marwood explores topics of everyday life from snapshots of family life and burning cakes to adventures at the beach and the birth of a baby. The poems are descriptive and entertaining and as you read they are telling their own little stories that you can relate to yourself.
It is a good collection to expose children to as many read poems that rhyme, the type of poetry that most children are exposed to as they go through school. The collection is also a good teaching tool for the classroom as children are exposed to the different ways poems can be set out for the best impact on the reader.
