Lani Steele was lucky enough to live among the 7000 beautiful islands of the Philippines, where she spent as much time as possible in the water, gazing down at bright fish living among fanciful coral castles. Wonder, beauty, imaginative and sometimes silly rhyme make up the twenty-four poems, a book of hours of the day. They are fun reading for all ages. Steele’s poems are beautifully complemented in paintings by students from the school where she taught. A feast for eyes and hearts.
