Review:

Poetry By Heart is an impressive collection of poetry that includes renowned, best-loved sources as well as little-known ones, from anonymous playtime chants to the celebrated poetry of Roald Dahl, Lewis Carol, Edward Lear, WB Yeats, and many others. This compilation, by Liz Attenbrough, a well-known figure in children's books, has a foreword by the poet Laureate Andrew Motion who believes that poetry should be a part of everyday life.

So enjoy the book--that's what it's here for: Enjoyment as well as edification ... --Poet Laureate, Andrew Motion
Some of the poems--the short, quick ones--are easy to learn, while the longer ones, mainly classics, take more learning but once memorised, will be remembered forever. They are cleverly illustrated by several different artists, which helps to bring the imagery of the words to life. --Susan Naylor

"Read the words-see the pictures-create a vivid scene." --Liz Attenbrough

"Sometimes you read a poem that you think must have been written especially for you. When you learn it by heart, it becomes yours." --Back Jacket

Review:

The poems we learn stay with us for the rest of our lives. They become personal and invaluable, and what's more they are free gifts - there for the taking (Simon Armitage)
