LoveReading View on All the Wild Wonders Poems of Our Earth

Both beautiful and purposeful this is a beautiful collection of poems celebrating the wonderful attributes of nature and spurring children on to thinking about how best to keep all living things on the planet safe. Taken from around the world, including the powerful title poem which comes from Australia, these poems capture the essence of things we take for granted such as weather, birds, water and trees. Without preaching, it is thought-provoking about the desperate need to preserve what we have.

All the Wild Wonders Poems of Our Earth Synopsis

In this celebration of our Earth, distinguished anthologist Wendy Cooling has chosen poems to make children look, think, and ask questions. Why are trees so important? How are motorways damaging our countryside? What can we do about rubbish? What can we do to protect our Earth for the future? Strong, colourful illustrations and a lavish new imitlin cover make this a gift book with a difference. Poets include Grace Nicholls, Thomas Hardy, Benjamin Zephaniah, Alfred Lord Tennyson and other poets from all over the world.

All the Wild Wonders Poems of Our Earth Press Reviews

'An inspiring poetry collection which will encourage children to take interest in and relish the nature they see all around them and to consider the future of the earth.'  Woman's Way

'All together this is a great selection, great for casual or purposeful reading, great as a teaching resource, great as inspiration for further efforts.' School Librarian 

'It is a strong collection and Piet Grobler's watercolour illustrations beautifully complement the poems.' Carousel 

'Poems that span the globe encouraging all readers to look at the good and the bad aspects of it make this a rich and original anthology. Twinning the themes of the wonders of the world and the horrors of how we despoil it means that the poems are both celebratory and angry. That leads to an interesting contradiction of styles and moods. Piet Grobler's vibrant illustrations bring the feel of different countries to life.' -- Julia Eccleshare Love Reading - Book of the Month'
