What I Like

What I Like

What I Like! is a playful miscellany of verse for young children from best-selling author and children's poet, Gervase Phinn.

This lively collection celebrates the things closest to a child's heart. Poems about food, family, school and animals jostle for our attention, along with counting rhymes, nonsense verses, finger games - and some very original treatments of familiar nursery rhymes.

Some familiar nursery rhymes have also been given a new slant:

"Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall,
Humpty Dumpty had a great fall.
But he bounced back up and laughed in glee -
He was a hard-boiled egg you see!

Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall,
Humpty Dumpty had a great fall.
He didn't shout and he didn't scream -
For below him was a trampoline!"

This is a very useful book for any nursery and reception class teacher to keep nearby - the rhymes will fill in a few spare minutes, can be taught to the children for assemblies and other presentations, and will supplement material for many topics and projects within the National Curriculum.

A wonderful resource!
