Following the enthusiastic reception for her first collection of poems, Elear McLeod has w written this second book, full of poems for the Autumn, Spring and Summer terms, as well as a lively selection on a variety of subjects, which will certainly be useful for teachers as well as appealing to her young readers who have already enjoyed the rhymes and structures, use of words and images of her imaginative verse. A review in SPEECH & DRAMA, the journal of the Society of Teachers of Speech and Drama, of the first book said: .. .a delightful selection of verse...they are immensely accessible, written with simple clarity and with the majority in a rhyming format and with metrical form. They are indeed for children to enjoy ....having some neat insights and observations. (She) has a sharp ear for the way children respond to poetry, consequently they should be read aloud to be fully appreciated, t just at school but in the family. So, here is the second collection!
