03 May May Author of the Month
For this month’s ‘author’ we are looking at different poets. There are so many great poets who have written for children from Edward Lear and Christina Rossetti to more modern poets such as Benjamin Zephaniah and Michael Rosen.
You can find out more about poets like these at websites such as https://www.childrenspoetryarchive.org/ ,
