A gorgeously illustrated introduction to poetry for children, featuring poems about everything from science, sport, and space, to friendship, family, and feelings. This thoughtfully crafted anthology is perfect for children new to verse, and for young poetry fans seeking out new favourites. Explore poetry from a diverse selection of contemporary and historical poets, covering a broad range of topics - from personal subjects like emotions and family, to the wonders of the natural environment. Carefully selected works encourage children to see the poetry in everything, and to embrace the beauty of their everyday lives. Prompts and activities inspire children to create their own poetry, and devices like rhyme, repetition, and alliteration are introduced and explained in a fun and accessible manner.
