The Big Book of Verse for Aussie Kids is the most comprehensive, authoritative and definitive book of poetry ever published in Australia for children. In this wonderfully eclectic collection the famous rub shoulders with schoolyard rhymes, alphabets and nonsense verse. Here old f...avourites, that have been loved for generations, sit side by side an impressive selection of modern verse that kids will enjoy reading, reciting, laughing at, acting out and hearing, again and again. There are poems to delight and develop every child's sense of humour; poems to inspire and stretch every child's imagination, verses to provoke a sense of wonder in every child; playground verses that have been handed down over countless years; and the largest collection of nonsense verse ever assembled. All in all over 600 of the best verses for children in the English language have been especially chosen for Aussie kids. Unashamedly the emphasis is on Australian history and heritage - from Banjo Paterson and C J Dennis right down to Max Fatchen and Colin Thiel - but Hilaire Belloc, Rudyard Kipling, Spike Milligan and Robert Louis Stevenson are never far away.
