Hong Kong Children’s Poems

One book to be read two ways! * A delightful collection of children’s poems. * Ideas on inspiring creativity in young people. 160 children took part in poetry writing workshops led by a group of Hong Kong’s foremost poets. Their poems shed an intriguing light on life in Hong Kong, seen by a new generation. This anthology has a particular significance for parents and teachers. It shows that using English freely and creatively is an important step towards full command of the language. The poet-editors convey the fun of this venture and explain the techniques used to encourage the children’s natural creativity. Their essays provide a source of ideas for teachers interested in exploring creative writing. Another section of poems by the poet-teachers and undergraduate assistants drawn from the creative writing classes at the University of Hong Kong provides added pleasure for the poetry lover. This collection, showcasing the talents of budding young Hong Kong poets, projecting their powerful and diverse voices into the future, is for people who enjoy poetry and for those who wish to nurture the natural creativity of children.
