A beautifully packaged anthology of poems from around the world and throughout history, all especially selected for reading aloud, with one glorious poem for every day of the year.


Everyone benefits from reading aloud, whether it's a bedtime story with Dad or Granny, an intimate moment with a loved one, or a performance to a group of people. Both the reader and the listener gain a far greater understanding of the poem, its subject matter and the mood the poet wants to convey - the words hit us more powerfully and meaningfully. And what's more, it's good for our health: mindfully reading aloud has been proven to help with relaxation, alongside improvements in working memory, vocabulary acquisition and communication skills.

With a wide and diverse range of poets including the 14th-century Persian poet Hafiz and Mary Oliver in the 21st century, old favourites such as Emily Dickinson and more recent voices such as Lemn Sissay, the obvious classics such as Wordsworth's Daffodils and slightly more offbeat fare like Spike Milligan, there's something for everyone in this book: poems that are funny, sad, consoling, uplifting and everything in between.

Whether you're a teacher enthralling a class of children or a carer entertaining a group of pensioners, if you're looking for a reading for your wedding or a powerful piece for a performance or poetry slam, you'll find everything you need here. It's the perfect book to dip into daily to share a poem with anyone, everyone or even just yourself, to hear the true beauty and rhythm of words and the magic they can weave.
