Reciting poetry is one of life's pleasures, no matter what your age. Memorising the words exercises the brain and gives it strength to learn and remember other information.
Celebrating the power of spoken word, this gift book contains 52 short poems for you to share and read aloud on a week-by-week basis. Each poem is accompanied by an explanation of its key messages along with some insight into the works and life of the poet.
Featuring both established poets and new favourites and language some may deem offensive, this book will capture your imagination and inspire you to follow in the rich oral tradition of sharing tales while reading aloud.
