This collection brings together the poems Ted Hughes wrote for children throughout his life. They are arranged by volume, beginning with those for reading aloud to the very young, progressing to the poems in Under the North Star and What is the Truth? and ending with Season Songs, which Hughes remarked was written 'within hearing' of children. Raymond Briggs brings to the collection two hundred original drawings that capture the wit, gentleness and humanity of these poems and make this a book any reader - child and adult - will return to again and again.

RHODES OF AFRICA by FELIX GROSS and pages of half-ton illustrations FREDERICK A. PRAEGER NEW YORK Cecil Rhodes In Memoriam AUTHORS NOTE rip HIS book, the result of twelve years of research work, is JL based on authentic contemporary sources. The thoughts and soliloquies of Cecil Rhodes are derived from his speeches, letters and reported conversations. So as not to interrupt the continuity of the story I have refrained from giving references in footnotes. An extensive bibliography of Rhodes and his times will be published later as it would be too bulky to be included in this volume. Ipi order to give inquisitive scholars an opportunity to make use of this bibliography one copy will be deposited in each of the following libraries Public Library, Cape Town. Library of the British Museum., London. Bodleian Library, Oxford. Library of Congress, Washington D. C.. I wish to express my gratitude to my daughter, Miss Ursula A, Gross, M. A., M. S., for her great assistance and patient collabora tion. To Miss Anne Kramer, B. A., and Mr Sidney Macer-Wright, my cordial thanks for their useful help.

In the Oxford Companion to Children's Literature it says of James Reeves, 'His real achievement, however, lies in his poetry, which is generally regarded as the best British ''serious'' children's verse since Walter de la Mare - though the poems are usually far from serious in subject-matter.' In this complete edition, first published in 1973, the delight is two-fold as the poems are complemented by Edward Ardizzone's beautiful and witty illustrations.

Professional poets spend many hours crafting a finished piece of work, yet we expect children in school to sit down and write when they are told to, whether they feel inspired or not. This series of four books is a toolkit to help you build a positive framework for children to read, write, understand and enjoy poetry - to bring a creative spark to the poetry classroom. A combination of featured poems, creative ideas, structured lesson plans and differentiated photocopiable activity sheets gives the series a uniquely flexible approach - which means you can use the materials in any classroom context. If you're wary of poetry, if you think it's boring, or if you're nervous about teaching poetry, then you've chosen the right book. Key themes covered in BOOK 2: Rhymes, Rhythms and Rattles are rhythm and rhyme in poetry, sounds, alliteration, words to create effects, onomatopoeia, and metaphor and simile. Other books in the series are: BOOK 1: Words and Wordplay; BOOK 3: Style, Shape and Structure; and BOOK 4: Language and Performance.
