My children love this book. Really good large range of styles of poems, from Shakespeare to Michael Palin, all easy to find in the extra contents page sorted by the first line of each poem. It even got taken into junior school and used almost daily by the teacher for a month or so.

It is an enchanting poetry book for young children with lovely simple text clearly written and charming illustrations making the poems easy to read for young children.

With poems from very well know poets like Roald Dahl, Spike Milligan, and classic poets like William Shakespeare and Edward Lear, there is defiantly some think for every child in this collection.

This book will defiantly be a book to treasure and will be read for many years to come !!

Just got delivery this morning of this beautiful book. Great mix of old and new poems, all wonderfully illustrated and the fact that it is hard backed means it'll survive that little bit longer. My kids 3 & 5 will LOVE this book.

We bought this book for our 6 year old grand-daughter. It's beautifully illustrated and has a wide variety of poems full of fun and thought provoking subjects and lines from some of our most influential children's poets. a really lovely book with clear type and design making the poems attractive visually and easy to read and flow.

Bought for daughters 6th birthday. Both she and my almost 4 year old love it. It's a good, varied collection and both children have begun to recite some of their shorter favourites. Definitely recommended.

The choice of poems is an excellent mix. There's some fun ones, easy ones to remember, some story type ones and some classic ones. The illustrations are splendid, the colours bright and cheerful. The sort of favourite book to keep returning to.

I got this book because my two year old twins enjoy another book "Noisy Poems" by Debbie Gliori and repeat some of the lines enthusiastically. I wanted something similar with more of the same. This does that to an extent. I would say that with this book, different poems will appeal at different ages, so it's a bit more long-term. Nice colourful illustrations, some good poems in, so I would recommend this, perhaps for four year olds and up.

My sister bought me this on a recommendation from a neighbour. I must say its a wonderful book with poems by various authors. There is a great mix of classic, modern, long and short poems. Some of them are absolutely hilarious and had us in stiches. We read it cover to cover as soon as we got it. It also has wonderful pictures. A must for young children and adults too!
