Reprint. Originally published: as Poems out loud. London: Hodder Wayland, 2003.

An essential classroom and library resource, this book features approximately 40 poems by some of the UK's top children's poets.

The focus is on poems that come to life in performance and meet the needs of the classroom teacher particularly at KS2 in terms of delivering the Literacy Hour requirements for poetry.

Paul Cookson, Michael Rosen, Andrew Fusek Peters, Pie Corbett, Wes Magee, and John Rice are just some of the outstanding poets that are included, and strongly represented are poets and poems from ethnic minorities whose work is more readily appreciated in performance than on the printed page eg John Agard, Valerie Bloom, Debjani Chatterjee and Adisa.

Brian Moses, the doyen of performance poets for children especially in schools, has compiled this collection to not only demonstrate the richness and excitement of poetry but to meet a wide variety of curriculum needs.

An accompanying CD features the poets performing their works.

Many of the poems are accompanied by atmospheric music and sound effects.
