Childhood Best-Loved Poems Book

Childhood Best-Loved Poems Book


Reviews (4)

This rich and enriching collection gathers together over 200 best-loved poems, from William Blake to Seamus Heaney, arranged in nine thematic sections.

There are poems of childhood, of love and life, of war and peace, of loss and comfort, of magic and mystery – poems to make you laugh, poems to make you cry and poems to make you think.

Nestling beside old favourites such as Kipling’s ‘If’, T. S. Eliot’s ‘Journey of the Magi’ or Keats’ ‘Ode to a Nightingale’ are some unusual but welcome choices – Arthur Hugh Clough’s hilarious anthem ‘How Pleasant It Is to Have Money’, Patrick Kavanagh’s aching love song ‘On Raglan Road’, and M. K. Joseph’s lyrical ‘Girl, Boy, Flower, Bicycle’.

Decorated on every page with artist Isabelle Brent’s beautiful illustrations, this is a book to be treasured.
