This book... not only is it beautiful, but the poem for 4th November, the anniversary of the death of Wilfred Owen, is Dulce Et Decorum Est. Such a powerful poem....
Every year both of my children get a book that coincides with their birthday. This is Florence‘s book for 2018. I love the idea of reading a poem every night before bed. I think the pages could have been a better quality and would have loved more illustrations but the small blurbs about each poem are excellent.
Loved this beautiful book!
Takes you on a journey through history, seasons, tells of festivals and traditions from different countries, cultures, and religions. Even poems including historical events. Each poem includes an introductory paragraph as well.
Some of the poets featured are Shakespeare, Angelou, Carroll, Yeats, A.A. Milne, Carol Anne Duffy and many more.
I didnt love every poem but most I did. Great way to add poetry to your day.
#bookishresolutions I have a few for the coming year. Mainly, I want to read more poetry and have this book that has a poem for each day of the year. Also, I have a lot of unread books on my shelf and on my Kindle, so I want to put more effort into reading those, so I'll limit book buys and the number I check out from the library. Finally, I'm excited to start my new reading log for 2017. #readjanuary
My best boy received this for Christmas, and I'm going to do my best to read a poem to him and his big sister every night of 2017.
Such a beautiful poetry book and a little something for everyday! I found today's entry particularly perfect- the Hogwart's sorting song! 😊😊😊
