An Invitation That Captured The Primary School Nation
This poetry book is a result of a national initiative, to help encourage and inspire children of primary school age to read and write. The children have written 'eight line rhymes' about exercise and healthy food.
These poems have been penned by children in the UK and United Emirates (Sharjah) It's wonderful to see how the children have awakened their imaginations. Illustrator Ric Lumb, has helped bring the characters to life with his colourful illustrations.
Very entertaining with some amazing poems.
My children both enjoy these and is nice to be able to end the day with a smile.
I enjoyed judging these poems.
A really helpful tool for teaching my children about rhyme.

My boys take turns reading aloud to us. Good luck to all the children.
My nieces in New York had a lot of fun at Christmas with the poems. Well done to all the children.
