Description

Michelle's poems feature everything from redback spiders and sharks to koalas and sugar gliders, to things that go bump in the night and horrible habits, to favourite foods and school, to the uniqueness of our country and its characters... Many poems have a recognisable Australian sense of humour and a larrikin tone which young readers will no doubt enjoy.A variety of poetic styles and forms are used in the book. These include traditional rhyming, free verse, haiku, list poem, ode, lullaby, anagram, fantastical nonsense poems, landscape poems, lyrical poems, narrative poems. This book would be an invaluable resource for teachers introducing students to the diversity of poetry, while at the same time bringing poems which are fun and accessible to children.The book is especially suitable for children in their primary school, as well as preschool-aged children (aided by an adult reader) As well as being an excellent introduction to the amazing world of poetry, teenagers, adults and children, will enjoy many of these poems for their humour and playfulness.show more
