A Poem For Every Night of the Year is a magnificent collection of 366 poems compiled by Allie Esiri, one to share for every night of the year.

The poems – together with introductory paragraphs – have a link to the date on which they appear. Shakespeare celebrates midsummer night, Maya Angelou for International Women's Day and Lewis Carroll on April Fool's day.

Perfect for reading aloud and sharing with all the family, it contains a full spectrum of poetry from familiar favourites to exciting contemporary voices. Alfred, Lord Tennyson, W. B. Yeats, A. A. Milne and Christina Rossetti sit alongside Roger McGough, Carol Ann Duffy and Benjamin Zephaniah.

This soul-enhancing book is the perfect gift that will last the whole year, with a little bit of magic to read every evening.

This book will bring a little magic into your day and into your heart. Allie Esiri's delightfully eclectic anthology takes you on a poetic journey through every night of the calendar year. A fun book for all the family to enjoy. Verse from ancient times to the present to soothe the spirit at the end of a fractious day. If you've had one of those days and feel too tired for a whole chapter before bed, why not try a poem instead? One to keep beside your bed.
