I Bet I Can Make You Laugh

(1 reviews with an average rating of 5 out of 5)

Publisher: Bloomsbury

This collection of very funny poems – from an acrostic poem that doesn't quite work, to a love letter to someone the poet doesn't really like – are, in many cases, hilariously uncomplimentary!

Divided into six sections - Words, School, Home Life, Animals, Food and Leftovers - this collection features poems from a diverse variety of poets writing for children today, including Adisa, Raymond Antrobus, Jay Hulme, James Carter and A F Harrold among many other well-known and less familiar names.

With poems ranging from a riff on 'You Are Old, Father William' to a love poem to the flu; and a poem written in the language of dog to one about a dog-eating piece of homework, this is a great collection of genuinely funny poems and they're refreshingly original for older primary kids, reflecting their lives and interests. Perfect for use by teachers in the primary classroom, to be read to children at home, or for independent reading.
