My first book of the week for 2020 is the wonderful A Year of Nature Poems by Joseph Coelho and illustrated by Kelly Louise Judd.
This book was initially published last year but is now available in paperback. It seems the perfect book for me to feature at the start of the year.
It’s a lovely book with a poem for each month of the year. You learn how animals behave in different seasons and learn about the cycle of nature through the trees and plants. The poems are all wonderful and are perfect for poetry tea time. We like to look at the monthly poem at the start of each month and talk about how we think it might reflect the season and moment of life we are in.
I really like the book. It gives us a focus and reason to do our Poetry tea time at least once a month, and it opens up many a talking point. I am looking forward to re-visiting this book this year again with the children. If you’re looking to start a poetry tea time with your own family, this might be a helpful post to identify some wonderful poetry books.
Joseph Coelho is a fabulous poet and this book earnt many many accolades in 2019. You can learn more about Joseph and his work here and you can be in with a chance to win your own copy by completing the rafflecopter below.

#gifted | It's a wet wet day outside today but we are pushing on with our spring time project this after and linking it to our work for the literature fair project too. We are looking at spring poetry today and having a spot of poetry tea time with this beauty of a book by @josephcoelhoauthor and illustrated by @swanbones (gifted to us by @quartokids ) The March poem is all about daffodils which fits perfect with the first signs of spring that we spotted last week.
