on 18 July 2017
These 1920s poems are a mixture. Some have dated, some are rather whimsical, but the majority make wonderful soporific bedtime reading for children! Telling children to listen without looking is very neglected nowadays. Poetry is easier for a very tired parent to read than prose, and listening to poetry without looking at the pictures is the best way for children to get sleepy. Market Square, the Little Black Hen and Sit Thomas Tom are my favourites, and of course The King's Breakfast is legendary!
