I discovered this website recently.

It’s a beta site and still being developed and is called.

Children’s Poetry


I used it to look up one of our favourite children’s writers.

We find the work of Allan Ahlberg inspirational.


On this site you can hear poets reading their work.  

They also introduce their poems,

giving a little background,

which adds to one’s enjoyment of the poem. 


Introducing his poem ‘Please Mrs. Butler’,

Allan Alberg explains that its link with

the ‘psychological state of teachers’

and all the questions they get asked!


There is also a video interview with each poet.

Click on this link for Allan Alberg’s.

Watching this would be inspiring 

for aspiring poets.


I hope this website goes from strength to strength.
