An encyclopedia of poetry containing 150 poems to inspire a love of poetry in every child. A gorgeous introduction to poetry for children, featuring poems about everything from science, sports and space, to friendship, family and feelings.
This thoughtfully crafted anthology is perfect for children new to verse and for young poetry fans seeking out new favourites. Explore poetry from a diverse selection of contemporary and historical poets, covering a broad range of topics - from personal subjects like emotions and family, to the wonders of the natural environment. Carefully selected works encourage children to see the poetry in everything and to embrace the beauty of their everyday lives.
Poems are complemented by detailed timelines and interesting facts about the topics covered, ensuring that the poems are not just entertaining, but relevant, topical and informative. Prompts inspire children to create their own poetry and devices like rhyme, repetition and alliteration are introduced and explained in a fun and accessible manner.
