I'm tempted to say that I'm not a poetry fan, but that wouldn't be entirely true. What I'm not a fan of is SERIOUS poetry. Adult poetry. Ponderous poetry. What I loooove is what poetry becomes in the hands of some with a silly sensibility, a way with words, and an audience of kids. Alice Schertle's "Button Up!: Wrinkled Rhymes" (2009) is a lesser-known but wonderful example of this.
👟👟👟
A book of clever, funny poems about clothing, written from the clothes' point of view, and illustrated in charming detail by Petra Mathers, this is a fun exploration of familiar objects from new perspectives. I love poetry for short storytimes and for prompting conversation with young kids. This is a great one to add to your library list!

"Lyra and Volkan are pupils with different views on writing poetry. Lyra finds poetry comes easily to her, while Volkan finds it difficult to know what to write. With the help of poet Kate Wakeling, they set out to find inspiration from the world around them." A very adorable video with MOON JUICE poet Kate Wakeling! Useful for poets of all ages. https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/articles/5l8pwCLS9mG210z3G0HFfZP/national-poetry-day

And you can order MOON JUICE in the webshop, in print or ebook. #EmmaPressKids #MoonJuice #childrensbooks #childrensliterature #poetry #poems4kids #childrenspoems #amwriting

Taken from last night's read - The Nation's Favourite Children's Poems and I think my favourite in the whole book 😍 I love it. The power of stories, in one beautiful poem.

Творческий марафон "День Крокодила 2019" от @elinaellis ⠀
Иллюстрация к стихотворению Ксюши Валаханович @vala__ksyu
⠀
💚  Медвежья услуга
⠀ ⠀
Где скрывается медведка?
Под листочками на ветке?
Может быть, в дупле осины?
Или в гнездышке осином?
⠀
В лисьей норке?
В старом пне?
В речке – с рыбками – на дне?
В джунглях: там, где бандерлоги?
⠀
Нет!
Она живет в берлоге!
Но выходит очень редко…
Почему? Скажи, медведка!
А она жужжит ответ: – Не пускает муж – медвед!
⠀
Я ему, не уставая,
Лапу медом поливаю,
Чтобы слаще были сны…
Все, не ждите
До весны! ⠀
⠀
Author: Alice, 7 y.o.

This week is poetry week @chaptersstorytellingclub so I went shopping for a children's poetry anthology. I have LOTS of grown-up poetry books and educational texts but I was lacking something weighty, truly child-friendly and varied - not any more! 
The Nation's Favourite Children's Poems - edited and compiled by Alex Warwick, published by BBC Worldwide Limited and with a foreword by Spike Milligan - has got it all. 
A wonderful collection of poetry in all shapes and sizes, it includes  all the greats - the ones I forgot about, the ones I could never forget about and the ones that passed me by. 
I started reading this, cross-legged on the floor of Waterstones this afternoon. 15 minutes and a numb bum later, I decided that I should probably get to my feet and pay for it. I did so very gladly and I'm about to take it to bed with me. 
This will be this week's book source - I will report back on what the children think of it and I'll be in tomorrow morning with my favourite!

💚 В комароще, в барсучаще…
⠀ ⠀
В комароще, в барсучаще,
В шуршулазных кое-где-брях⠀
Чёрный кусь глаза таращит⠀
На чехвостую козебру.
⠀ 
А в глуши папуапущи,
Где бельдонятся мокрыси,
От лохматой царапущи⠀
Разбежались ну-ка-брыси.
⠀ 
Распушив свои усищи,
Закалёкала стрекОча,
Чепухищники бобрыщут,
Доням пузики щекочут…
⠀ 
В бурундуплах и слонорах,
На ветвях грибаобаба…
Ты их встретишь очень скоро:
Между «если бы» да «кАбы»! ⠀

This children’s song carries strong emotions to me. 
It tells the story of a child who got lost in town after going there together with mum and dad. When dusk came and he still couldn’t find his way, he sang it in his husky little voice. The story never said if he found his way or not.

Do you know the song?
