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).

Synopsis

Can it be About Me? by Cheryl Moskowitz

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.

Reviews

'As well as keenly observed pen portraits of school life, the author precedes eat poem with a comment about its origin, or an explanation of poetic form making this an anthology with a difference.'

'An appealing and warm collection'

'A gem of a collection' 'A wealth of carefully observed and recollected vignettes of childhood experience: funny, poignant, angry and hopeful by turns, it is a lovely gift for a primary school child.'

'an exuberant assortment'

I love Lovereading as it provides an honest opinion and showcases a range of fiction. Suited to both parents & kids alike, it’s a must-use.
