Review

Poet Laureate Carol Ann Duffy has brought together a spirited, enriching and exquisite anthology of poems for children.Including poems from both 'big name' poets and the less well-known, it explores the world we see around us and what it means to be alive. Each chosen and placed with great care, the poems in this anthology will amuse and surprise young readers. Here are poems that encourage writing as well as reading, showing us that we can all have something to say; that we can borrow, invent and invert.

From the first poem to the ending, this is a delightful celebration of poetry - an encouragement to enjoy sounds, words and language, which is perfect for both the classroom and the home.
