A valuable aide for your child’s listening, rhyme is an extremely powerful way of improving kids’ memories in a friendly way through thrilling characters such as dinosaurs, Santa Claus and more.

Enjoy multiple stories at once

Children’s poetry books transfix your little ones’ minds in a way that traditional books simply cannot. Poem anthologies allow multiple fascinating tales to be told in quick succession. Kids will enjoy reciting and reliving their favourite stanzas for many years to come, and might even want to have a crack at writing their own, too!

Great fun for the whole family

Popular poetry books for children aren’t just enjoyed by kids alone. Timeless classics such as Roald Dahl’s Songs and Verse can be shared by the whole family in a way that bonds parent and child in a one-of-a-kind way.
