Hello. Can anyone recommend a poetry book suitable for a bright 10 year old girl? Thanks

I remember my children at a similar age loving the poetry collection 'One of Your Legs is Both the Same' with works by Michael Rosen and Colin McNaughton, among others.

A book introducing young readers to more 'traditional' poetry is 'This Way Delight', an anthology compiled by Herbert Read.

Roger McGough.

My 9 year old likes Valerie Bloom, some West Indian dialect in that.

Her favourite is still Please Mrs Butler though.

Benjamin Zephaniah might go down well. And yes definitely Roger McGough
