Poems About Families Summary

Poems About Families by Brian Moses

This anthology of poems, compiled by Brian Moses, contains a mix of light-hearted poems and more serious ones, poems that rhyme and those that don't. There are plenty of good 'read alouds', thumping choruses, and the sort of poems that children can use as models for their own writing.

Poetry is a key feature of the new National Curriculum and these fantastic poems are perfectly suited for this.

Beautiful illustrations bring each poem vividly to life.

Includes poems by Grace Nichols, Paul Cookson, Debra Bertulis, Clare Bevan, Kate Williams, Celia Warren, Ian Souter, Penny Kent, Sue Hardy-Dawson, Julie Anna Douglas, John Foster, John Rice, Judith Nicholls, James Berty, Marian Swinger, Neal Zetter and Brian Moses.

For other titles compiled by Brians Moses, look for Poems About Animals, Poems About the Seaside, Poems About Emotions and Poems About Festivals.

About Brian Moses

Brian Moses lives in the small Sussex village of Crowhurst with his wife Anne, a loopy labrador called Honey and a collection of bad-tempered chickens.

He first worked as a teacher but has now been a professional children's poet since 1988. To date he has over 200 books published including volumes of his own poetry such as Holding the Hands of Angels (Salt) and Behind the Staffroom Door (Macmillan), anthologies such as The Secret Lives of Teachers and Aliens Stole My Underpants (both Macmillan), picture books such as Beetle in the Bathroom and Trouble at the Dinosaur Cafe (both Puffin) and non-fiction titles such as Titanic: Lost & Saved (Wayland). Over 1 million copies of Brian's poetry books have now been sold by Macmillan and in 2005 he was nominated for both the CLPE Award and the Spoken Word Award.

Brian also visits schools to run writing workshops and perform his own poetry and percussion shows. To date he has visited well over 2500 schools and libraries throughout the UK. He has made several appearances at the Edinburgh Festival, been writer in residence at Castle Cornet on Guernsey, on the Romney, Hythe and Dymchurch Light Railway and at RAF schools in Cyprus. Recently he has visited several International schools in Germany, Switzerland, Belgium, Italy, Spain, France and Ireland.

He has performed his poetry at Borders on Second Avenue, New York and in September 2006 he was invited to Iceland to take part in 'Kids in the Marsh' - a festival of children's poetry and song. At the request of Prince Charles he spoke at the Prince's Summer School for Teachers in 2007 at Cambridge University. He is one of ten children's poets invited by then Poet Laureate Andrew Motion to feature on the National Poetry Archive.
