So I've learned that April is National Poetry Month in the US and I'm just going to roll with that here at Little Reads. Did you know that kids are primed to love poetry? The rhyme, rhythm and word play of poems make them so perfect to share with early childhood learners. This particular anthology is full of short poems of all kinds with a common theme of 'the outdoors' so your guys are sure to love it. Simon James is the talented author-illustrator of some of my all-time faves (Dear Greenpeace and Baby Brains) and here he has collated a fabulous group of poems written by himself and other poets too. When I read these poems to children, they respond so positively and always enjoy linking their own experiences to what we've read, it's brilliant! Keep an eye out for 'Days Like This' at your favourite library or bookstore, and tell me, does your family have a favourite poem or anthology? .
