The Puffin Book of Fantastic First Poems
is a magical celebration of poetry for very young children, acting as a stepping stone from nursery rhyme to poetry without being in the least bit patronising but instead providing a unique mix of funny, unusual and exciting work from a wide range of poets.
This highly accessible collection is divided into seven sections where children can read about animals, playtime, families, mealtimes, outings, curling up for bed or just plain nonsense. Featuring some of the best work from over 60 favourite poets and packed tight with bright illustrations which perfectly capture the essence of the words, The Puffin Book of Fantastic First Poems is a book that the whole family can enjoy together. (Ages 3 to 6) --Susan Harrison
