    ⭐⭐⭐ 3/5 Stars Thanks to NetGalley for providing me with an E-Book copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. This is a lovely little guide for writing poems. It contains an explanation of all the stylistic devices and the different forms of poetry. The illustration and design is pretty and it is just the right book to motivate oneself to start writing poems!

Between the tasks and blank pages that are to be filled are examples of poetry to get ideas and inspiration. I really enjoyed flipping the pages and taking my mind on a journey though the four seasons. Unfortunately the book is not readable as an E-Book, thats why i had to read it on my Laptop (The problem is that I can always see two pages at the same time on my E-Book screen which is a bit too small to read.).

    This is a sweet little poetry journal that gives you prompts every few pages like "write a piece of prose about the sound of the waves crashing and the warmth of the sun against your skin." The pages are lined with simple illustrations every few pages and prompts about every two or three pages. The beginning has a few pages about common poetic types and techniques. The color scheme is blue and white, and the book is split into seasons with prompts loosely associated with each season.

The pages are lined with simple illustrations every few pages and prompts about every two or three pages. The beginning has a few pages about common poetic types and techniques. The color scheme is blue and white, and the book is split into seasons with prompts loosely associated with each season. Most of the prompts are too specific for me (and about topics I don't necessarily write about) and are probably best suited to beginning poets. The author also has a lot of her own poems sprinkled in the journal, which generally go along with the prompts. I was excited to preview this book as I had been looking for new poetry resources to get me back into writing. I majored in creative writing in college and had over a hundred poems published in my twenties, when I used to do moody poetry readings in coffee houses and all that dramatic business. I thought this book would be right up my alley but it wasn't a great fit for me. It's likely to work well for many, though, and probably be a great resource for teen writers. I read a temporary digital ARC of this book for review.

It then goes on to explain a few poetry terms/techniques, and then breaks into four main sections - each dedicated to one of the four seasons - filled with prompts. What I really liked about this that prompts were not limited to specific instructions. There were sample poems in various styles, as well as a few small images throughout. As someone who enjoys writing but doesn't make enough time for it, this journal sparked ideas in my head and reminded me about the joy to be found in poetry. I can imagine buying this book for friends and diving into it myself with a print copy and a pencil in my hand. This is a writing journal worth picking up.

    Page 174 has a dream catcher on which is a Native American creation and is commonly known to be considered cultural appropriation if used by white people. I recommend it is removed as otherwise it’s a great book.

Her debut poetry collection, “Moonflower” was published in February 2020 and her next publication, “A little sunshine and a little rain: A Poetry Journal” will be available from 9 March 2021. “A little sunshine and a little rain” is divided into the four seasons to spark the imagination throughout the year. The journal includes a helpful introduction, some of Sabina’s short poems, poetry prompts and many lined pages to fill with writing. She has created a work which is both accessible to people who have never written a poem and to advanced poets who may have lost the impetus to write. As many poets know the judgment of perfectionism can be crippling; it can stop you from starting. This journal provides a safe space where you can keep your writing private. The journal is visibly enchanting and provides some structure and encouragement to write. Sabina’s illustrations are beautiful and delicate which makes the pages unique. This is a different practice to using the Notes App on your iPhone to type down lines so you won’t forget them. As Natalie Goldberg puts it, “Handwriting is more connected to the movement of the heart”. Writing down your ideas and thoughts and drafting poems in a journal are creative ways of looking after yourself and it’s important to have fun with that creativity. Approach these pages with compassion and understanding, accept what comes up and be kind with yourself. A huge thank you to @NetGalley and @FrancisLincolnPub for an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

There are cute illustrations and little poems to keep your creativity flowing and I believe it can be really helpful to beginners. I've used this for a month now (in my diary, since I received a digital copy) I would definitely want to own a physical copy of this.

    "Poetry changes the way we see the world" is how the book commences and it takes you on an exploratory journey and discovery of your own poetic side. Beautifully laid out and decorated with wonderful poems, prose and prompts to get you thinking and creating your own poetry in no time at all. A wonderful collection for you to keep after in a beautiful book.

I loved that while it gave you a brief introduction to various styles of poetry writing it encouraged you to just discover your own style and your own voice and expression. It is broken down by seasons of a year. Autumn was my absolutely favorite, and while I enjoyed the prompts to discover my own poetry I adored the pieces of work the author chose to include. Will definitely be on the hunt for her collection! Highly recommend for anyone who likes to dabble in writing and expressing themselves, even if only to themselves.

    Thank you to the publisher who provided me with a free copy to review. This is a nice little poetry journal. When you first open it gives you an introduction to writting poetry explaining the different techniques and structure. The journal is broken into 4 seasons. Each season has example poems to give you inspiration to write your own from the prompts and ideas it gives you like ' write a poem imagining you are on the moon, looking down on the earth.'

Each season has example poems to give you inspiration to write your own from the prompts and ideas it gives you like ' write a poem imagining you are on the moon, looking down on the earth.' Its a very tidy style with white background and blue ink. The journal gives you plenty of space to write more than one poem or be creative with layout. The only reason i have given it 4 stars is that it doesn't work as an ebook. As you can't write in the book (which is the whole point of a journal) but also it shows two pages at a time which means you have to zoom and slide which isn't practical.

There is basic info on literary techniques & poetry styles at the beginning for reference.

I do like the four seasons & nature themes. •Overall, this is a neat concept!

    I requested an early copy of this because I am on a long quest to understand and appreciate poetry a bit better. While I can understand more of the modern poetry than classic poetry, I don't always feel like it has a lot of depth, or the magic in the words that some of the older poetry does. So when I read the description of this I thought perhaps I could use this as a way to expand my understanding of poetry a bit more.

It offered some really interesting insights, and being a person who frequently writes for my own cathartic and personal use, it provided some inspiring prompts and education around what I'm actually doing when I simply spill what's inside me onto paper (i.e. - screen). I'll be thinking about and revisiting this often.

    *4.5 This is a perfect journal for beginner poets, people returning to poetry after a while, and poets who are in a writing rut. Some of the prompts can be a bit basic, but most of them are interesting and can be personalized to create great works (I wish there was a hashtag or something for people to share what they've written with each prompt). There are poems interspersed between the prompts that are unrelated, but very good. I would love to read her other book of poetry.

    Organized by season, this is a sweet little book offering a variety of prompts to get you started writing poems. I was a little skeptical at first, but actually found this to be pretty nice, and I can see using it and following the calendar year to actually write the poems during their corresponding season. The author also includes example poems, which I wasn't so into, but which could definitely be a plus for some people.

    I won a copy of this book through a Goodreads giveaway. It more than exceeded my expectations. The quality and materials used were a delight. The writing prompts and ideas to promote poetry writing were on point. I like that the introduction covers different elements of linguistics and poem structure. The bookmark ribbon was a great feature. What I like most about the layout is that it is designed to help stimulate the user during different seasons and parts of the year.

    Rating: 5 Re-Read Factor: Yes I absolutely love the premise of the book: prompts to accustom oneself to the idea of poetry. It's quite daunting. At least for me, when I think of poetry, I think of fancy writers with fine tastes of artistry who have an innate sense for the subject, not people like me with no substantial English language background. The book's a great gateway into the world of writing at large, and I highly recommend it to anyone interested in starting it.

    I won a copy of this book on Goodreads Giveaways. What an amazing book. I love poetry. I read the book and I will go back and try to write some poetry, but I can't imagine writing anything as beautiful as what Sabina has written. I won a copy of this book on Goodreads Giveaways.
