The Puffin Book of Fantastic First Poems
by June Crebbin
Our 8 year old’s English teacher introduced us to this book. When she has 3 minutes to wait for the lunch bell to ring, she takes out this book and regales the children with funny poetry. It keeps them calm and interested despite rumbling tummies, antsy feet, and minds ready for a break! These poems, from classic authors (Robert Louis Stevenson and Walter de la Mare) to contemporaries (Roger McGough and Michael Rosen), cover seven themes: animals, playtime, families, mealtimes, outings, curling up for bed and “whatever.”
Pull out Puffin’s Poems when
- there isn’t time for a full story before bed
- table manners are slacking (and poems work better than lectures)
- entertainment is a must while waiting in line during a family outing
