A great pick-up-and-go resource, enticing great fun and engagement with the whole class. -- UKEdChat
[Full of] unusual suggestions for memorising poems including - constant motion, changing direction at every comma and full stop; and surprisingly learning the poem backwards! -- The Irish Times
This book is ideal for pieces for verse, speech and drama competitions, but children will have fun just performing these to each other in school or at home... Teachers will also find many of the lively poems and monologues will provide great material to read out to the class at story time or for creative inspiration. Highly recommended. * Drama Resource *
