I must admit to considerable resistance to these books at first - booklets of 'poetry to topics' seemed rather like a combination of the old class poetry text books and a Reader's Digest approach. This initial reaction was very wrong. The books give just enough for a single sitting and are a brilliant taster, as well as being an excellent way of getting poetry into the homes of some children without overwhelming the child or, indeed, the parent expected to share the book. The wide style of illustrations, a few of which sometimes jarred to my eye, proved popular probably because they helped keep up the speedy pace. The selection of poems is a strong introduction and these titles are a must to supplement any class or school poetry collection. They're also incredible value for money.
