The Lovereading4Kids comment
Age 7+ 100s of poems chosen by school children all around the UK was the starting point for this collection. Roger McGough then paired the list down to just 100 contemporary and classic poems.
January 2011 Guest Editor Jenny Downham:
"I had a poetry anthology as a child that I adored, but which is sadly out of print now. What I loved most about it was that there always seemed to be a poem to describe exactly how I was feeling. It gave the book a magical property for me. I still have my battered old copy and I often dip into it. Here’s an anthology that contains many of the same poems. And the great thing is that these were all chosen by children from 135 schools across the UK."
