The Best Children’s Poetry Books

possum

The Guardian‘s Kate Kellaway has put together a short list of the season’s best poetry books for children.

While most on the list focus on a Christmas theme, not every book is holiday-centered. In fact, Carol Ann Duffy’s new collection New and Collected Poems for Children from Faber tops the list.

Also included are Christmas Poems by Gaby Morgan and a new edition of T.S. Eliot’s Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats.
