You're a Poet: Ways to Start Writing Poems

By Sean Taylor

Illustrated by Sam Usher

When Piglet picks up a stone and drops it into a puddle, something special happens … words splash out: Wet, Fresh, Earthy, Sploshing, Sunshiny, Puddle. Piglet is a poet!

You’re a Poet is a story book with a difference – through five uniquely warm and cosy tales, readers can delight in the happy world of Piglet, his family and his friends and, at the same time, learn five brilliantly fun and easy ways to write a poem. Within each story, Sean Taylor shows children how to make a: "Puddle Poem", a "Comparing Poem", a "Make a Person Poem", an "If I Was Poem" and an "I Would Give You Poem". With plenty of poetry-writing tips and tricks after each story, Sean makes this form truly accessible and by the end of the book, even the very smallest of children will be able to confidently call themselves a poet.
