Let’s Play

Let's Play

Edited by Debjani Chatterjee and Brian D’Arcy (Frances Lincoln)

An anthology of poems new and old about a whole range of sports and games from across the world, nicely and colourfully presented in a large hardback with lovely illustrations by Shirin Adl. This is not a particularly exciting collection but it does what it presumably set out to do – showcases some different sports and, with two pages of information about them at the back, lets children know where and how they are played. I don’t like the fact that some poems are represented only by extracts. But there are some good poems here. TUC
