Vanessa Proctor from Sydney and Gregory Piko from Yass have collaborated in writing a book of haiku that celebrate the joys of parenthood from the creation of a new life through to early childhood.
The book is titled Blowing Up Balloons: baby poems for parents and is published by Red Moon Press. Vanessa and Gregory will be launching Blowing Up Balloons (BUB) in both Sydney and Yass over the coming weeks with everyone invited to attend.
