One way of tackling poems for young children is to give them the feel of a nursery rhyme. That means rhyme and rhythm and, perhaps, a touch of mystery or the absurd. Roger Stevens can do that. Another way might be to get your readers and your listeners joining in: whispering, chanting or dancing, or suddenly shouting BOO! Roger Stevens can do that. He can even join his readers in thinking about how clouds which are so grey, can help to make the world so colourful; how thinking about sad things can make you feel sad; and how chasing a dog in the woods can make you feel happy again. The collection is divided into three parts, ‘Fun Time’, ‘School Time’ and ‘Home Time’, but there’s fun and curiousity everywhere, all pitched at exactly the right level for Reception and Year 1 children.
