Well that changes a lot! In that case, asuming there'll be two verses max per page and lovely illustrations, the idea's great! And I love well done children's book, I still have the one about two bunnies that are arguing about which one loves the other more (anyone else read it? So cute...), and though I probably shouldn't admit this, a good children's book or film makes me happy ^ ^ So yes, this is a lovely idea, and could work because it's not something that will be printed in a poetry volume in tiny print. Reading through it, it did appear to me that the language is somewhat not fitted for serious poetry, but having the knowledge of its purpose, this works. And I don't think it's emotionless at all. After all, complex emotion isn't something you see often in children's books, so this is a piece fitted perfectly for its purpose : )
