A Poem For Every Day of the Year is a magnificent collection of 366 poems compiled by Allie Esiri, one to share on every day of the year. Reflecting the changing seasons and linking to events on key dates - funny for April Fool's Day, festive for Christmas - these poems are thoughtful, inspiring, humbling, informative, quiet, loud, small, epic, peaceful, energetic, upbeat, motivating, and empowering!

Perfect for reading aloud and sharing with all the family, it is bursting at the seams with familiar favourites and exciting new discoveries. T.S.Eliot, John Betjeman, Lewis Carroll, William Shakespeare and Christina Rossetti sit alongside Seamus Heaney, Ted Hughes, Carol Ann Duffy, and Kate Tempest. This soul-enhancing book is the perfect gift that will last the whole year, with a little bit of magic to read every day.

MEDIA REVIEWS
A Poem for Every Day does exactly what this sort of book should do and rallies the old crowd-pleasers (Housman, Kipling and Hardy make multiple appearances), then makes occasional dashes off the beaten path to take in things such as Imtiaz Dharker's lovely poem Crab-Apples and even one poem by that gruff bastion of inaccessibility Geoffrey Hill (Ode on the Loss of the Titanic). If you feel as though your life is lacking a bit of poetry, this is an excellent place to start. * Best Poetry Books of 2017, The Times *
