The Lovereading4Kids comment

Poetry is a fun way for children to enjoy learning to read, developing their vocabulary and understanding of ideas and themes. This collection of 44 fun poems for 7 year olds offers a wide range to appeal to all children, from poems about dragons and ghosts to poems that are great to read aloud, like 'What's That?' and 'Ten White Snowmen'.


I Can Read! Oxford Poetry for 7 Year Olds by John Foster

Featuring a fantastic range of children's poets and five exciting themes with full-colour illustrations, this is the ideal approach to encourage a love of reading, whilst developing an understanding of poetry, meeting the new requirements of the National Curriculum.

The collection has been carefully selected for children in Year 3 of school and includes helpful parent notes for every poem and a glossary of key terms from the series editor and children's poet, John Foster. It is the third of three poetry collections that will support your child from learning to read in Year 1 through to understanding themes and developing vocabulary in Year 3. This collection of poetry has the perfect balance of engaging rhyme, familiar themes and amusing illustrations to promote a lifelong love of reading.
