Here's what one of our members thinks of her bag
A big thank you for the two Lovereading bags I ordered, which have arrived safely. I love mine and will use it with pride. The bags are lovely quality, sturdy and support a good cause in the Rewrap initiative; I think they make the perfect accessory for any book lover. The second bag was a gift for my sister and she says she will take it to her next book group meeting to help spread the Lovereading word. Once again, many thanks. Emily Wright
SynopsisA Million Brilliant Poems A Collection of the Very Best Children's Poetry Today by Roger Stevens
Age 9+. The best collection of contemporary children's poems ever! Every anthology has one or two poems that seem to shout out: 'Hey! I'm the best. Read me again. Learn me by heart. Love me.' So here, for the first time, are all of those poems collected together - from the pens (and computer keyboards) of some of the finest poets in the land.
'If this varied and witty collection doesn't convert youngsters to enjoying poetry, then nothing will.' Irish Examiner
