The Lovereading4Kids comment

Another lively collection from Roger Stevens, who does more to inspire a love of poetry in young children than almost anyone, and these are ‘poems to chase the clouds away.’ Grouped into three sections – Fun Time, School Time and Home Time – the subjects will all be familiar to little children but the poetry makes them special. Look out for recurring mentions of teacher Miss Moss and the irrepressible Billy, impervious to teacher’s Fairy Dust:

She sprinkles it on naughty boys

It stops them being silly

And helps them work, and sit up straight

It doesn’t work on Billy

~ Andrea Reece
