The Lovereading4Kids comment
Age 7+ This book is a classic and although life in the school playground is a little different now to what it was when it was first published this remains one of the best introductions to poetry for young children.
Heard It In The Playground by Allan Ahlberg
This illustrated collection of amusing poems and songs celebrating primary school life won the Signal Poetry Award in 1990. Meet Billy McBone and the Mad Professor's Daughter, be amazed by the Longest Kiss Contest, shed a tear for the Boy Without a Name and, if you're a stressed teacher sing the Mrs Butler Blues.
