A Little Aloud for Children

Publisher: David Fickling Books

This new anthology brings together a wide range of poetry and prose ideal for reading aloud with children. With a foreword by former Children's Laureate Michael Morpurgo, it incorporates a lively and diverse selection of both well-known and well-loved favourites, and less familiar material which may be new to young readers.

Authors range from acclaimed contemporary writers, such as David Almond, Frank Cottrell Boyce, Shaun Tan and Neil Gaiman, to classic children's authors from Joan Aiken to Roald Dahl to E. Nesbit, as well as bite-size snippets from Shakespeare, Kipling and Dickens.

Each piece has been selected by the Reader Organisation, a UK charity for reading and health, with the aim of capturing children's interest and imagination. Ideal for classroom use as well as bedtime reading, this is a delightfully varied and enjoyable collection.
