Brian Moses
Authors:
Brian Moses

A highly entertaining listen as well as an essential classroom and library resource, this audio collection features approximately 40 poems performed 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 (many of the poems are accompanied by atmospheric music and sound effects) but to meet a wide variety of curriculum needs. An accompanying book provides all the poems in written form and notes for teachers are provided on www.hodderwayland.co.uk.
