Children's Poetry Volume 2
Subtitle An Invitation That Captured The Primary School Nation
By UK Children
Published by Poems and Pictures Ltd
Christina Gabbitas, wanted a writing initiative that children of all abilities could take part in, with the chance of having their work published. The children were given the topics of Food or Creatures. A selection of the poems have been published to help encourage and inspire other children of primary school age to read and 'have a go' at writing.
There are over fifty new authors listed in this book. Selecting the poems was challenging and greatly rewarding. The imagination and effort invested by these budding poets makes their poems a pleasure to read over and over.
£1.00 from the sale of each book is being donated to Barnardos, and a thank you to Rick Lumb who donated his time illustrating.
Lots of fun poems, hope the children win.
Our boys really like the poems in this book. Hope this helps to inspire more children.
A deserved winner. Good luck to all the children.
Brilliant work, all around! Reading this book puts a big smile on my face. The authors have done an fantastic job and the illustrations are full of fun!
My sons poem 'One Day' is featured in the book, and he is really happy , to see his poem in print. Thank you, Christina for encouraging him.
We have had a lot of fun with four children, reading these poems. Our favourites are Dino Diets and Cute Chicken. Well done to all the children
Earthworm poem is my favourite and a great illustration too. Good luck.
Anything to do with chocolate gets my vote. We enjoyed all the poems.
Thank you for giving my son the opportunity, this has been great for his self esteem and his first published work.
Brilliant idea, great work
I bought this book for a friend who worked in a Montessori School. The children love the poems, and are inspired. Good luck to all the children who have been busy writing.
These poems are great for my boys. Our favourite is Flamingo Friday
I enjoyed drawing the picture for the front cover last year. The cover looks great and some of the poems made me laugh.
This has made a great present for my grandson, it was good to meet you in WHSmith Guildford. I'm sure you have made a lot of children happy, giving them an opportunity.
I enjoyed being a judge and reading some interesting poems about food.

It's wonderful to be able to vote for all these new children's authors, who are having their work showcased. I think we will definitely see more of them in the future. Congratulations.
