Description

Nominated for the Governor General's Award for Poetry

Winner of the City of Calgary W.O. Mitchell Book Prize

Richard Harrison's fourth book, Big Breath of a Wish, delves deeply into the linguistic discoveries children make in their first two years of life. It uniquely opens up these discoveries to readers, who identify both with the child and the parents and, through Harrison's clear, suggestive language, rediscover themselves.
