Macmillan Children’s Books is proud to be celebrating 25 successful years of publishing poetry. From modern classics to the newly published, our poetry list include poems that soothe, rally, praise, celebrate, make us laugh and pick us up when life seems too hard. There is a poem for every moment or occasion. These are words for life!
Macmillan Children’s Books have put together a kit that has everything you need to celebrate National Poetry Day on 4th October and beyond!
There are 150 free packs available.
Your pack includes the following:
- 3x A4 poetry posters (x 2 of each)
- 5x packs of poetry postcards (x 20 of each)
- 25 ideas of how to celebrate poetry in your library
This is strictly one pack per order so if you are ordering packs for more than one library or school you can either order these individually or email Kimberley.Sheehan@readingagency.org.uk. Please make sure that you include the school or library name in your address so that we know where the packs will be used.
You can order these brilliant packs until 31 August 2018 (but they may sell out before this date).
Packs will be delivered week beginning 10 September 2018.
Please note, if you order a Macmillan Children’s Poetry 25 Years pack you are agreeing to use the materials within your library and to send photos of your event and feedback to Kimberley Sheehan by 10 November. Please do not order a pack if you cannot commit to this.
Win A Bundle of Poetry Books!
When the librarian isn’t there …
We’ll also be running a nationwide competition to win a bundle of poetry books! We’ll be asking children to imagine what might happen in the library, when the librarian isn’t there. The best poem will win a bumper pack of poetry books! Look out for competition details on the Reading Agency website soon.
We can’t wait to hear about how you are celebrating. Keep us updated by sharing any news and photos via Twitter @MacmillanKidsUK, @readingagency and tagging #MCBPoetry25.
The publisher will be dispatching your resources. They will receive a dispatch list with your contact name and work address (which you give) for delivery. They will only deliver the pack requested and the dispatch list will then be deleted after the packs have been sent.
