In Just for Fun, children’s author Barbara Bryan creates a delightful treasury of verse, this time for all ages. With her trademark knack for unearthing enchanting rhyme and rhythm, along with gorgeous, full-color illustrations, Bryan celebrates the everyday world we live in.
What emerges is both personal and universal as Bryan trains her eye on subjects as focused as her Labrador and as widespread as the ocean. In “Mrs. Parker,” Bryan explores the reasons a longtime teacher continues through the hard slog of education; in “Fourth of July,” freedom takes center stage, along with the fireworks.
Through it all, Bryan lightheartedly reveals the magic that goes on all around us, if only we’d stop long enough to notice it.
