Favourite Poems to Celebrate Babies and Children
poetry to celebrate the child
A beautifully illustrated anthology of poetry celebrating babies, children and childhood – from the magical times and memories of childhood, through to the unconditional love a parent has for a child.
Some of our best-loved poets are featured, such as William Blake, John Betjeman, Robert Louis Stevenson, Adrian Mitchell and WH Auden.
The poems begin in infanthood, with the joys that babies and toddlers bring as they learn to move and speak, and progresses to playtime, friendships, holidays, trips and school days.
The wonderful, endearing illustrations throughout make this the ideal book for anyone who celebrates a child in their life.
‘This is a wonderfully nostalgic anthology of poems…There is much depth to this collection.’
‘Stunning retro illustrations accompany some of the best poetry… A charming treat.’
