All Kinds of Poems for All Kinds of Kids by David Harmer (Small Donkey)
Spoiler alert! The title of this book really gives the game away. It does, indeed, include all kinds of poems that will appeal to lots of people for lots of different reasons – and I like them all. David Harmer is a true master of rhyme; often unexpected, always clever, and at all times just right for the line it’s in. It’s obvious from the often funny/sometimes serious tone of these poems that he knows his audience very well. Illustrations by Ted Schofield are also fab. A really good collection.
