Read Aloud moral stories in verse written and illustrated in colour by Lucian Eyers. These original recordings by the poet with special sound effects are suitable for all ages. The Read Aloud facility will help you recite the poems confidently, as they were intended. There are 28 beautiful colour illustrations, one for each poem. The subjects of the poems are spiritual and philosophical, tackling daily issues in an amusing and sympathetic way; written as small mantras, they can encourage you to remove the need to worry and be grateful for the day. These stories reveal also help you live in the present, not the past or the future, thereby turning the concept of 'One Day' into 'Day One'. Seen through the eyes of a lovable and gentle character, 'Sparky the Cat', the poems were guided and channelled by the author's Angel and Spirit Guides.
“A leisurely stroll through nature’s gifts, sights, sounds, smells, evocative and soul enriching. The poetry has a soothing quality that reaches into and unlocks the childlike innocence that is still within us all. The illustrations are amazing, a perfect complement to the word on the page. I particularly like "One Day" and now regard it as a mantra to read every day! "Patricia" always brings a smile to my lips and a lift in my heart. Each poem has a wonderful sing-song quality that lilts and lifts and lights the day. A real treasure - for all ages.” Sheila Medici, Kent – Google Book Search.
“A delightful collection of poems concerning the problems present to many of us in modern day life. The thoughtful illustrated poems are presented in a lighthearted manner, with simple but often easily overlooked solutions. Many smiles will be brought to your face when reading these poems, particularly the Worry Worm. “– Jody Barnett, Waterstones Book Reviews.

Sparky book of hours
I found this book to be delightful and uplifting. The simplicity and honesty of the narrator's voice in the poems is disarming but alongside this child-like innocence there lies deep wisdom about the world around us and within us. It reminds me of William Blake's Songs of Innocence and thebeautiful images are an integral part of the reading experience. It's what makes this book so unique and memorable.
