Bookside Down - Children's Poetry Library (Paperback)Joanne Limburg (author)
- Not available
The poems in Bookside Down are written about and for 21st Century children, who are into their friends, the TV, Wiis, DS's, computers, collectibles and things that make them laugh. They deal with important matters such as difficult schoolmates, daft parents, impossible siblings, the last days of the dinosaurs and the death of planet earth. In this book you will find rhyming poems, non-rhyming poems, poems that are conversations and poems that tell stories. You could read them to yourself, read them aloud, or even use them as patterns to write your own poems.
