Wee Three: A Mother’s Love in Verse began with a few simple verses written by Helen Springer Moran, Ms. Bishop’s grandmother. Marta Moran Bishop expanded those verses, wrote others, and Wee Three was born.
Wee Three is guaranteed to make you smile, laugh, and remember the days of your own youth. It is a highly entertaining story for both children and adults and will delight the listener with its simple verses. If you enjoyed A.A. Milne or Robert Louis Stevenson’s children’s verses, you are sure to love Ms. Bishop’s Wee Three: A Mother’s Love in Verse.
Her poems remind us of a child’s world, full of observations and discoveries. As seen through a child’s eyes, we view animals, bugs, and plant life. Many of the funny poems tell of worms, bees, clever cats, and dogs. The poems also speak to us of nature, rain, snow, and rainbows, describing them from a charmingly wonderful children’s perception.
Ms. Bishop’s poetry gives us a unique opportunity to see the world through the eyes of an innocent child. I am convinced that Marta still lives as an inquisitive little girl who is interested in everything.
