This review is from: The Works: Every Kind of Poem You Will Ever Need at School (Paperback)
This book is invaluable for teaching literacy in Primary Schools. As a 3rd Year trainee teacher this book has proved very useful. When presented with teaching a whole range of poetry in Year 6, the book provided the only basic reference source I needed. It has an easy format to follow by simply grouping the poems in poetry type for example, humourous and shape poems. I did use other poetry books to supplement the book such as, 'The Puffin book of Utterly Brilliant Poetry' edited by Brian Patten, which people would also find useful. By the amount of fellow trainee teachers who have this book I would recommend it to anybody.
