Offering a wealth of ideas and support for ways to really bring poetry alive, this book draws on what is known to work, and explores fresh thinking. It will help both new and experienced teachers approach poetry with imagination and confidence.

Written by people who have taught poetry in different settings for many years, and with contributions from poets Michael Rosen and James Carter, this book offers ideas on:

- using drama

- cross-curricular working

- what to do with younger learners

- inspiring children to write their own poems

- and much more ...

An enjoyable and uplifting book, it is a must for anyone working with children aged 5 to 14 who is looking for inspiration for their poetry teaching.

'Although written from a wide range of perspectives, each chapter is crammed with ideas as to how to invigorate children's enthusiasm for the poetic beats which might be lurking, tucked away and hidden, in every corner of their everyday lives and dreams. The message of the book is clear: don't just bring poetry alive, keep it alive' -
Tracy Parvin, Senior Lecturer CCCU

'The title says it all. Enthusiasts show how to promote poetry joyfully in the classroom and beyond. The perspectives of poets, teachers, teacher educators and a Children's Laureate combine to offer the reader a whole range of practical ideas for making poetry an enjoyable and satisfying experience. Put one in every staffroom!' -
