The Lovereading4Kids comment

A delightfully varied collection of poems which capture many of the familiar things that take place in classrooms, every day and every where. All children will recognise themselves in some poems whether it is Lunchbox Hero or Number Troubles! Ros Asquith’s well-observed and wittily executed illustrations highlight the details perfectly.

Poems about friendship, playing games, teachers, bullying, jealousy, quarrels and secrets! Funny, thoughtful and entertaining, Cheryl Moskowitz is an exciting new talent, and in tune with what goes on inside and outside the classroom. This exciting debut collection is inspired by workshops with Year 3 pupils (age 7).

What I do when someone calls me stupid! First of all I know they're wrong, then I find that place inside where I am strong I walk away with my head held tall till I find someone that I can call a friend a friend Poems about me, about you, about everyone in the class.
