    In this collection, Julia Donaldson has chosen poems with performance by children in mind, and in the notes section at the end of the book are her notes and ideas on performing them. Julia's passionate belief that performance can help children enjoy reading and grow in confidence is informed by her own experience both as a child and now, working with groups of children to bring stories, poems and songs to life. The poems range from classics by Edward Lear, W H Auden and Eleanor Farjeon to contemporary work by Michael Rosen, John Agard and Clare Bevan. Illustrated throughout with exquisite, expressive lino-cuts, this is a book for teachers, parents, children: anyone who loves great poetry. This beautiful collection would also make a wonderful gift.

    Just in time for the World Cup, this is an inspiring story of a Brazilian boy who dreams of being a football star - and the sister who steps in to help his team win a game. When Paulo Marcelo Feliciano becomes a football star, crowds will cheer his famous name! Then his mother won't have to work long hours, and he won't have to work all day on a fishing boat. For now, Paulo takes care of his little sister Maria (she teaches him reading, he teaches her football moves) and walks her to school, stopping to give his team-mates cheese buns as they set out to shine people's shoes or perform for the tourist crowd. At the day's end, it's time to plan the game, where Givo will bounce, Carlos will kick - and Jose will fly! But when Jose falls on his wrist, will the team finally break the rules and let a girl show her stuff? Set in a country whose resilient football stars are often shaped by poverty, this uplifting tale of transcending the expected scores a big win for all. It is set in a favela in Brazil, host of the 2014 World Cup. It features a girl player, sure to appeal to young female fans of the game! It presents lyrical text by Mina Javaherbin and gorgeous illustrations by Brazilian illustrator Renato Alarcao.
