Robert Louis Stevenson’s poems for children have that gift of simplicity which goes straight to the heart of the matter. This is the last week of the school holidays for New Zealand children. And I’m sure they want to make the most of these long hot summer nights. A little too hot for sleep sometimes! But before long it will be a lot cooler so I wish parents and children a wonderful week of warm and playful summer evenings, before the routines of school life return.
