Puffin Book Of Poetry For Children

101 Poems


No other form of art can capture the range and diversity of human experience the way a poem can. Within these pages, you will find poems about an itch, an afternoon of play, the joys of surfing the Internet, the fear of an injection, about the cruelty of being different and being judged for it; sad poems about losing someone close; and almost anything you can think of.

Eunice de Souza and Melanie Silgardo bring together works of poets ranging from Victor Hugo to Deepa Agarwal, Alfred Lord Tennyson to T.S. Eliot in this lively and inspiring collection.

Here is the perfect introduction to the variety and sheer joy of poetry for readers of all ages.
