Read Me 2: A Poem for Every Day of the Year by Gaby Morgan
  

The Lovereading4Kids comment

A handsome and welcome new edition of this excellent poetry book, which contains a poem for every day of the year. The range of poems included is simply superb – there are traditional poems and classics alongside poems by contemporary authors such as Carol Ann Duffy, Jackie Kay, Ian Macmillan and Philip Gross. Poems in fact to represent all the different days and the different ways we might feel on them. It’s a collection every child should own, a demonstration of all that poetry can offer – comfort, reflection, surprise, joy – and a means of instilling a love of poetry in them. ~ Andrea Reece
