5.0 out of 5 stars an excellent mix !! 27 April 2010
By Twinkle
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I bought this Children's Poetry book as it featured a selection of works from classic and modern poets. It is a book for children suitable from 6 years until they have left school and beyond.

The choice of poems is an excellent mix, in which they cover fun and thought provoking subjects. It is a captivating poetry book with lovely simple text clearly written and charming illustrations making the poems attractive visually and easy to read.

This book will defiantly be a book to treasure and will be read for many years to come, with something to delight and inspire every child !

4.0 out of 5 stars Great for Little ones 26 Aug 2009
Format:Hardcover
This is a great book. My Daughter had it as a present for her Christening and is now 9 months old. She always digs it out to have something read to her. Magic Cat is her fave but she just finds a page and we read it to her - a great way to introduce rhyme and books to the very young.
