hopes dreams and medals Reviews
This book of poems by Loretta Livingstone is awesome! She puts you right in the thick of the emotions that could be felt during the Olympics. You can feel the rush of excitement, challenges, highs and lows and anticipation of the athletes competing. You understand just how proud family and friends are of the athletes they are cheering on. You can sense the atmosphere of the crowds routing for their country to take first place. And get a chill from her description of the cold blustery weather everyone endured just so they could be part of this historic event. The photos (by Nicola Sharp) are gorgeous and a wonderful accompaniment to the beautiful poems and complete this book. I found this book inspiring, motivational and moving and would highly recommend it. Loretta you have a great heart and spirit. God bless you for writing it - loved it!!! Erica Hood
Loretta has such a fantastic range. Her poems can be faithful, inspirational, funny or just plain cute. I'm a big fan of the Olympics and sports in general, and I could find so many of my own emotions in these poems. My Boy is one of my favorites because it describes me, the true soccer mom, to a T! And King of Speed is just without a doubt my younger son! Thank you so much Loretta for your beautiful words that express what I often feel but can't describe! Wonderful book!
Loretta has got a unique way with words, and of looking at the world, which makes this book a must read. She will make you smile and make you think, so if you haven't read any of her poetry, I suggest you start. Right Now.
This is my second book. I am very proud that it has been bought by some members of Team GB. I gave it five stars - but then, I would, wouldn't I. Although, please note that I have not given all my books five stars. It was inspired by the Summer and Winter Olympics, and the dedication athletes must have to reach the highest levels they can achieve. I hope it inspires you to reach for your dreams too, but it does also include some of my more humorous thoughts. I hope you enjoy it.
