This anthology of poems, compiled by Brian Moses, contains a mix of light-hearted poems and more serious ones, poems that rhyme and those that don't. There are plenty of good 'read alouds', thumping choruses, and the sort of poems that children can use as models for their own writing. Poetry is a key feature of the new National Curriculum and these fantastic poems are perfectly suited for this. Beautiful illustrations bring each poem vividly to life. Includes poems such as: Spring Phoned by Ian Souter; Spring by Clare Bevan; Springtime in Bluebell Wood by Wes Magee; Spring in the City by Brian Moses; What is Summer For? by Kate Williams; Summer Clouds by Penny Kent; Bed in Summer by R.L.Stevenson; Dear Summer by Kenn Nesbitt; The Swallow by Christina Rosetti; Autumn? by Chris White; Autumn Song by John Rice; Autumn Action Rhyme; Sounds Like Winter by Chris White; I Hear Thunder; December by Daphe Kitching; Mr Snowman by Debra Bertulis; Snow Joke by Clare Bevan; The Seasons in Me by Jane Clarke; Time by Trevor Harvey.
