My National Poetry Day visit to Books for Kids in Hamilton

This is a wonderful bookshop for children with a very good poetry section.

I ended up buying lots of poetry books– and got an idea for a challenge. See the first photo to see the books!

I read poems from my new book, The Letterbox Cat and some children brought along their cat poems to read.


We made up a poem for the bookshop:


Kids for Books

Kids for Books is our fabulous ticket to

enchanted forests and imaginary creatures

experiments and explosions

rivers and caves

snow and avalanches

cliffs and islands

mountains and underwater treasures

tunnels and volcanoes

waterfalls and the stars in the sky

valves and rhymes

pizzas and ice creams

the tropical jungles and the sea

to any adventures and The Faraway Tree.
