Something for the kids

A poetry recommendation for those of you who are at home with children

There are loads of poets writing for children! But one of my favourites is Gareth Owen, who writes on a huge range of topics for children, because many of his poems have something that adults can appreciate too. Have a look on the Internet and you'll find lots of Gareth Owen's poems. I have his Collected poems for children  and it has loads of Post-it notes sticking out - always a sign that a book of poems is interesting / useful / definitely worth reading.
