Short poems that reveal the magic in small, everyday things: a plastic bag dreams of becoming a cloud, raindrops go on holiday to the sea, and hats fill up with thoughts. These small slices of life prove that poetry is ideas, thoughts and emotions captured in words and remind children that they can write poetry about anything that’s around them.
