Review

There is little that is as deeply satisfying than the apt poem. It's like chocolate for the soul. Except less fattening. It resolves the nervous system, captures the elusive experience of being alive so we may always have it and never lose it. Give your child an appetite for poems and they will never be bored - Helena Bonham Carter on iF Poems

This gorgeous and electrifying anthology should be on the shelf of every child in Britain - Carol Ann Duffy

A book full of old friends and some new surprises - Quentin Blake

The thing I really like about it is that I really like everything about it. An absolutely brilliant collection. I'm continually telling people to have some poetry in their lives, iF has made it a little easier for them - Benjamin Zephaniah

The iF anthology of poems - both beautiful and useful. What more could anyone want? --Erica Wagner, Literary Editor of The Times

5.0 out of 5 stars A must have book 4 Oct 2012
By jsherw
Format:Hardcover
This new anthology is the best of its kind. Whether you are a parent looking to teach your children classic poems, teachers looking for resources for teaching English, or simply just looking for a present for someone, then look no further than iF. The illustrations set this book aside from its competitors, and make it more accessible for children. The explanatory paragraphs before the poems are also very funny, quirky and useful. I could not agree more with Carol Ann Duffy. This anthology should be on the bookshelf of every child in Britain.

I have loved dipping in and out of this at various points in the last few months. My children have enjoyed listening to the poems, and it has been great to share them together old and new. Homework! Oh Homework! has become a firm favorite. It is a great addition to any family bookshelf.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect Gift 28 Nov 2013
By JB
Format:Hardcover
this is the perfect gift for children as it is well priced and the kids just love dipping in and out of it from time to time. Learning poems has become a fun game in our house and certainly not a chore.

The lay out is extremely clear and there is definitely every poem you can think of in there as well as plenty of new ones too.
