Here's a Little Poem

A gloriously illustrated first book of poetry, collecting together verse from a range of well-known authors.

Here's a Little Poem is a superb selection of over fifty poems by English and American authors, including Wendy Cope, Roger McGough, John Agard, Grace Nichols, Colin McNaughton, Jack Prelutsky, Langston Hughes and many more. Affectionately describing the early experiences of young children, this is a warmly illustrated, imaginative world of first encounters. Simple text and exuberant illustrations make this an ideal introduction for young children to the wonderful world of poetry.
