    I have read a few poems from this book and I think they were very relatable to children's lives so I think they may find this interesting. Also there was lots of humorous poems for children to enjoy and they weren't too difficult to understand, so they are age appropriate for primary school children I would say.

    My first thought with this book is that its size alone might mean it not be the kind of book that a child may pick up themselves to read from. It is a rather weighty text with over 300 pages of text with sporadic black and white illustrations. Because of this I think this is best used as a kind of ‘reference’ poetry book which the teacher might read aloud from. The content itself is very good with a huge amount of poems which are sorted loosely into vague themes.

    An excellent children’s poem book. I loved how the poem was split into categories and the poems are relatable for children and adults. My favourite sections of the book was “I think I could Turn and Live with Animals” and Earth, Earth under My Shoe.” The poems would be appropriate for key stage two because they have rich language and vocabulary.

    This book houses an extensive collection of poetry and containing poems suitable for both KS1 and 2. The book itself at first glance might seem quite intimidating as the book is made up of more than 250 poems from more than 130 poets. The book contains a wide variety of poems from short and simple limericks and anonymous entries to works of renowned children’s poets. The book would lends itself best to being read aloud, either by a teacher or by a student rather than featuring as part of a book This book houses an extensive collection of poetry and containing poems suitable for both KS1 and 2.

The book would lends itself best to being read aloud, either by a teacher or by a student rather than featuring as part of a book corner or school library. The book shows many different types of poems written in variety of ways and so it is bound to contain something to capture children’s interest and entice them into the world of poetry. Authors in this collection range from Carol Ann Duffy to Rudyard Kipling and Ted Hughes to Benjamin Zephaniah. The poems in this collection could be studied individually, for example using The Highwayman for a whole lesson, or used as a starter or talking point if smaller poems such as Animal Rights were read aloud.

    A very large selection of children’s poems which would be great to use with KS2 children. Some of the poems in this collection are much longer than poems found in most children’s poetry collections which exposes children to a range of different styles. I would use these poems with KS2 because of the language used which is sometimes quite complex and may not be as accessible to KS1 children.

Because of the large range of poems included, there would be ones suitable for all children in KS2 as there are a couple of much simpler ones for LA children. Overall a good poetry collection to have in a KS2 classroom, both for teaching purposes and the children’s enjoyment.

    A very wide variety of poetry, some accompanied by imagery which can help make them more interesting from a child's perspective. The poems cover a wide range of topics and come in all different forms. This would be a great tool for teaching a topic in English, with the beginning of the book providing very helpful information regarding poetry writing.

    Really enjoyed this poetry book. Large variety of poems covering differing subjects. I feel the poems can be shared with a whole class just to enjoy at the end of the day or select a specific poem to base an activity on. My favourite poems from the book are The secret rhyme for Orange and The Vegetables Strike Back.

    Really really enjoyed reading the poems in this book! Some very witty poems with some great real life messages shining through the humourous words! Lots were short and snappy with incredibly relatable scenarios for both adults and children! Loved it!

For English, there are many different teaching opportunities. -Quality of grammatical structure in poetry. This book demonstrates that poems have no boundaries. They can be written formally, in verses, upside down or letter upon letter. In 'Mr Bidery's Garden' there are words which are made up but you get the impression you know what they mean. -Good examples for studying Metaphors, for example .We are going to see the rabbit.' reflects these days of urbanization and the last rabbit represents the loss of the fauna and flora of the world. -'Combinations' would be good poem to kickstart a lesson in alliteration or repetition. -Drama freeze frame opportunities. A great deal of the poems also reflect the everyday struggles in a kids life. For PSHE lessons, there are poems based around bullying, racism and issues surrounding mortality and grief. Lot's of children would have experienced these issues, making them all the more relevant.

    A wonderful collection of many interesting rhymes and poems. The layout of the rhymes and the illustrations are both very fitting and match the topic of each poem. Additionally, the poems are ideal for children of any age group. Children can learn about different subjects and topics with these poems. The collection consists of different sections e.g. "What is poetry?", "Off to School" or "Earth, Earth, Under my Shoe".

    The poems in the book are no doubt an excellent selection, but as a physical object it is not inviting to pick up and get immersed in.

    I read a range of poems from each section, I particularly liked the poem ‘Back to School’ but some of the poems I found a little strange.
