Age 3+. Here is a collection of more than 80 poems and rhymes from a glittering galaxy of more than 50 poets. It is a delectable assortment of light, melt-in-the-mouth poems for the very young to dip into again and again. They are the poetic equivalent of good mood food!There are poems for playtime, teatime, bathtime and bedtime - a mix of cautionary verse, nonsense rhymes, lullabies and comic verse. Over 100 pages of pure delight. First published back in 1993, we're thrilled that this timeless collection has been reissued with a wonderfully vibrant new cover for a new generation of children to enjoy.
With themes ranging from pets, magic and weather to favourite foods, families and toys, there are poems for every occasion. And the mix of cautionary verse, nonsense rhymes, lullabies, lyrical poems and comic verse adds up to an anthology to suit all moods and moments. There are contributions from Michael Rosen, Wendy Cope, Charles Causley, Valerie Bloom, Brian Moses, Spike Milligan, Jack Prelutsky and many, many more. Each poem is accompanied by full colour artwork - from a diverse range of illustrators including Tony Ross, Nick Sharratt, Ian Beck, Brian Wildsmith and Korky Paul.
