Poems About Festivals

Written by Brian Moses

Illustrated by Kristina Swarner

Part of the Poems About Series

Poems About Festivals Synopsis

This anthology of poems, compiled by Brian Moses, contains a mix of light-hearted poems and more serious ones, poems that rhyme and those that don't. There are plenty of good 'read alouds', choruses, and the sort of poems that children can use as models for their own writing. Poetry is a key feature of the new National Curriculum and these fantastic poems are perfectly suited for this. Beautiful illustrations bring each poem vividly to life. Poems include: Let's Celebrate by Sue Hardy-Dawson; The Chinese Dragon by Catherine Benson; Pancake Day by Debra Bertulis; Holi, Festival of Colour; Mother's Day by Eric Finney; Children's Day by Penny Kent; Eid-ul-Fitr by Penny Kent; It's Diwali Tonight by John Foster; Harvest Thanks by Jan Dean; A Hallowe'en Pumpkin by Dorothy Aldis; Fireworks by Judith Nicholls; Eight Candles Burning by Celia Warren; Long, Long Ago; Christmas Eve by Brian Moses; Happy New Year by Brenda Williams. For more poetry titles compiled by Brian Moses, look out for Poems About the Seaside, Poems About Seasons and Poems About Animals.
