The Lovereading4Kids comment

This poetry collection for 6 year olds, with parental guidance and notes for every poem, has been created in line with the National Curriculum to support children learning to read at home and build confidence for school.

Poetry is a fun way for children to enjoy learning to read, developing their vocabulary and understanding of ideas and themes. This collection offers a wide range of poems to appeal to all children, from poems about giants and space rockets to poems that are great to read aloud, like 'The Wizard Said' and 'Meddling Muddle'.
