    This is my all-time favorite book. I fell in love with this book when I was 8 years old, and found it in the back of my school library. I was heartbroken when they got new books and got rid of this one. I found it online, just last year, and bought my own copy. Reading now, I realize that I wasn't imagining it as a child, these are NOT kid-friendly in the modern worl, but I absolutely love these poems.

    This books holds an excellent and varied collection of poems that are of interest to adults and children alike- my personal favourite is 'Robin Hood and the Bishop of Hereford'! Whilst a teacher could discuss some of these poems as an introduction to poetry for a whole class, the language, which is often 'old-fashioned', makes this book more suitable to children who are more comfortable with reading and understanding poetry.

    Although this book is aimed at children under the age of 7, I still firmly believe that it is the most suitable poetry book that I have read for children to learn and understand how poetry works. For example, most modern poetry books that are aimed at children try to take the historical roots out of poetry books to make the words more understandable, whereas this book does the opposite, but still makes the poem understandable for children.

Moreover, the array of poetry means that every child’s reading levels and interests are adhered to as there are different forms of poetry such as nursery rhymes, ballads, rhyming couplets, mystery poems, romance poems, fairies and funny jingles to get the whole class involved. Although most of the poems in the book were new to me, I believe it is more attractive and easier to understand than the poetry books that I have been familiar with and even if it may seem almost ‘too advanced’ for children, it is only going to enhance their imagination and vocabulary more.

    This is a good example of a book that is both of scholarly interest as well as of interest to children. This is a great way to get “your feet wet” when introducing poetry. This has a lot to chose from, that way every child’s needs are met. This book is meant for ages 7 and below. Since every child learns differently, every child has different interests when reading, and every student is on different reading levels; this provides so much to the reader and will meet everyone’s needs.

    A wonderful anthology, sure to inspire children to love poetry! As you flick through, you feel like you could spend hours enjoying this text. I particularly liked the illustrations from Wildsmith, simple yet great visual aids for children taking a step up from nursery rhymes (inclusion of ballads, faery tales, songs of nature and people, limericks and jingles). A very special collection celebrating the diversity of English poetry for children (and enjoyed thoroughly by adults too!).

    Grades: 3-5 Genre: Poetry This is a good book for little readers who are learning or trying to write poems. I like this book because this poem book has a variety types of poems, not just one type of poetry. Rate 5-5

    A book filled with loads of lovely poems. The poems are all sectioned into different themes and the drawings that accompany them are colourful and very visual. Really useful book.

    On a personal level I think I struggle with poetry! But can see how this would be a good reference

    I can see how this could be of use in English poetry lessons, definitely a good read through primary school. Each poem is understandable for children, I enjoyed these poems!

I would recommend this book for children in the fourth grade and up the reason for this is that in order for them to actually understand some of the poems they need a higher level of vocabulary. I think this would be a good book to allow children to let their imagination be. I think that teachers can utilize some of these poems as themes for their lesson plans. Another lesson idea is to have the children draw a picture for the poem as you read it to them. Overall, the structure of this book is many poems around and an illustration near by that connects. I think these kinds of books of poetry are important in order to get our youngsters interested in poetry. The reason for that is that poetry can allow them to express themselves.

    The "Oxford Book of Poetry for Children" is a big transition from nursery rhymes for young kids to short poems of fantasy, suspense, and nature. The book of poetry contains creative and unique pictures that really catch the readers eye. This book is unlike any other poetry novel I have read before! However, the poems seem to be difficult for young kids to read and understand because of the wording and format in which the poems are laid out.

However, the poems seem to be difficult for young kids to read and understand because of the wording and format in which the poems are laid out. The book seems to be a little too advanced for children just starting to get familiar with poetry. I would suggest poetry books from the authors Jake Prelutsky or Shel Silverstein over Edward Blishen's because the poems in these authors books are easier to read and more entertaining for children who are taking that leap from simple verse poems, to more complex and advanced techniques of poetry.

However, this was part of the reason I became interested in poetry and began writing some of my own so I guess it had some influence over me.

    I will never recommend this book of poetry to anyone, yea i know it is old but it was hard for me to read and follow what was going on. There is barely any pictures in the whole book and the poems just fill up the pages. Half of the time I never knew when a new poem was starting and when it was ending they just tended to run into each other which made it really confusing.

    This is my favorite book of poetry for children. I have a first edition, from 1963. It was a gift to me at Christmas when I was four years old, by my godmother. This book started me on my love affair with poetry. This cover shot is from the 1996 re-issue. I will try and post a photo of the first edition, because it is so powerful and magical.
