A Poem for Every Day does exactly what this sort of book should do and rallies the old crowd-pleasers (Housman, Kipling and Hardy make multiple appearances), then makes occasional dashes off the beaten path to take in things such as Imtiaz Dharker's lovely poem Crab-Apples and even one poem by that gruff bastion of inaccessibility Geoffrey Hill (Ode on the Loss of the Titanic). If you feel as though your life is lacking a bit of poetry, this is an excellent place to start. * Best Poetry Books of 2017, The Times * For the whole family but especially eight-plus readers, A Poem for Every Day of the Year... gorgeously presented and intelligently selected. * New Statesman * Not only is it a thing of beauty, it also offers an accessible, informative, bitesize approach to poetry. * Daily Mail * Perfect for reading aloud and sharing with all the family. * Guardian * Allie Esiri's A Poem for Every Day of the Year has 366 great poems, whether a funny one for April Fool's Day, a festive one for Christmas or a moving one for World Refugee Day. It also teaches you about important events through the year. * The Week Junior * If you haven't picked up a volume of poetry since school, this is the perfect place to start. * The Pool * [A] splendid new compendium... There is material for all ages. * The Herald * These poems are funny, thoughtful, inspiring, humbling, informative, quiet, loud, small, epic, peaceful, energetic, upbeat, motivating, and empowering!... It will prove a valuable resource for teachers, and a comprehensive anthology for home libraries. * Parents in Touch * Bursting with inspiration and an accessible way to introduce a bit of poetry into your child's everyday life. -- Sarah Dawson * The Independent *
