Product description

Bring poetry alive in your classroom with this classic collection of performance verse chosen by Julia Donaldson, the nation’s best-loved picture book author and current Children’s Laureate.

Julia’s passionate belief that performance can enhance a child’s literacy and confidence is informed by her own experience of working with children to bring stories, poems and songs to life. Specially chosen to be performed by children in two or more voices, these poems range from classics by Edward Lear, W.H. Auden and Eleanor Farjeon to contemporary favourites by Michael Rosen, John Agard and Clare Bevan. Julia’s own notes at the end of the book share her thoughts and ideas on how to perform the various pieces. Illustrated throughout with exquisite lino-cut artwork, this is a must for every primary classroom and for any lover of great poetry!
