The Lovereading4Kids comment

Delightful and kind humour bubbles through this collection of poems about everyday things in family life - and the creatures that are part of it. Among other things, there’s a look at garden birds, at a bumblebee, at a drink of lemonade and at a day at the seaside. A perfect introduction to poetry for the youngest readers.


Here Come the Creatures! by Wes Magee

Funny, sad, silly, sing-along, the poems are about friends and families, pets and creatures, school, space travel - and more. There is something for everyone in this sparkling collection - with lots of action and joining in.

A brilliant and varied poetry collection suited to early years and key stage one aged childen from this distinguished children's poet.
