Product Description

Review

This delectable collection of poems written by a performance poet who is well known in schools, is perfect for reading aloud and will be greeted with delight by teachers and children alike. (Bookseller)

What shines through is a real understanding of the target audience and the things that will appeal to them. A great book for the classroom/ school library. (Parents in Touch)

A delightful collection with a lovely range of subject, form and mood. (School Librarian)

Read aloud, the poems spring to life and invite interaction and participation. Exploring them visually is also rewarding sa the texts are clearly set out and easy to follow. Mique Moriuchi's simple illustrations, in shades of grey, provide a playful, visual complement to the poeems, capturing their essence and are integral to the whole. (Ibby Link)

Format: Paperback
Good poetry books for younger children are thin on the ground. Either they come in big glossy coffee-table type tomes - the sort that granny might buy at Christmas (not that there's anything wrong with that) or they are regurgitations of poems written fifty or more years ago. And however great you might think Robert Louis Stevenson's poems are - they are very much of their time.

How wonderful, then, to read James Carter's fantastic book. Like RLS it's full of gentle, daft, sensitive, funny, sad and serious poems. But, and here's the really good part, it's not twee or sentimental. The poems are modern - of these times. Nice illustrations too.

Format: Paperback
Just perfect for younger children. Imaginative and engaging, with the language at the right level for children to read the poems themselves. My six year old daughter loves this book, especially reading aloud from it.
