Even WE are smiling at this gorgeous new children's poetry book by Michael Rosen

Even My Ears Are Smiling by Michael Rosen is the perfect poetry book for children

even my ears are smiling

It got us chuckling as soon as we opened the pages, Even my Ears Are Smiling by former Children's Laureate Michael Rosen is a great way to introduce children to poetry, and it features gorgeous illustrations by Babette Cole, who some of you might recognise from her books Mummy laid an egg and Princess Smartypants. Think, poems and illustrations about strawbery jam, nursery rhymes (and hairy crimes) and some knobbly knees... to name but a few. The book also comes with an audio CD read by Michael Rosen himself.

Even My Ears Are Smiling by Michael Rosen is available now to buy now, £8.99, amazon.co.uk, but we thought we'd also give you a sneak preview of one of our favourites... ouch!
