by Pie Corbett (Macmillan)
A fantastic collection of whimsical, funny, beautifully written poems – some with a message, some worthy of their place in the book just because they make you smile. Children will love having them read to them, but should be encouraged to read them aloud themselves (even the one entitled A Poem To Be Spoken Silently!) as this will help them learn a lot about the satisfaction of speaking cleverly crafted phrases. They’re not all easy poems; they are all proof of Corbett’s wonderful way with words.
