The Lion Book of Poems and Prayers for Easter by Sophie Piper

The Lovereading4Kids comment

A collection of poems for the season. Some such as Edward Thomas’s Thaw and William Wordsworth’s famous I Wandered Lonely as a Cloud are on secular themes but most are poems celebrating the events around the crucifixion of Christ.


The Lion Book of Poems and Prayers for Easter by Sophie Piper

This poetry anthology includes both jolly and thought-provoking poems and prayers, old and new, to take the reader on a journey through the Easter season and the themes of faith, new life, love, hope and the joys of Spring. The collection includes poems and prayers that look at the lighter side of the festival, as well as more thoughtful, reflective pieces about the Resurrection.

Poets and illustrators include William Blake, Caroline Jayne Church, Emily Dickinson, Tina Macnaughton, Sheila Moxley, Coral Rumble and William Wordsworth. The giftable hardback format makes this a special book to share at home, whilst the wide scope of the poems makes this equally valuable for teachers looking for assembly and classroom resources .
