Hot Like Fire

(2002)
A collection of poems by

 
 
When de July sun hot like fire,
Den I have jus' one desire,
To run down to de shop an' buy a
Kisko pop.

The World Is Sweet
and Hot Like Fire are collected together for the first time. Valerie Bloom's poetry is beautifully crafted yet full of energy and fun. Her mixed use of standard English and dialect is a delight to read and hear. Children love reading and listening to her work! Valerie's subjects range from global pollution, problems with math homework, and the sad demise of pet frogs (he croaked of course), to taking sandwiches to school and being afraid of ghosts.
