Mansfield nursery children's poems to be published in new book
Children from Paper Moon Day Nursery in Forest Town will see their poems featured in the ‘My First Poem’ book 2021.
Earlier this year the children worked with staff to turn their imaginative ideas and thoughts into rhymes and poems and the staff were so impressed by the children’s ideas that, along with discussions with the children and their parents, decided to submit them as entries to ‘My First Poem’.
My First Poem is the nursery brand of Young Writers and their aim is to encourage the reading and creative writing of poetry within nurseries and preschools. Entries are selected for publication based on imagination and expression and the children’s entries have been selected to be published in the ‘My First Poem’ book 2021.
Andrea Baker, nursery manager, said: “The staff and parents are so proud of the children and being able to see their imaginative ideas and thoughts treasured in print for them to see in years to come has been wonderful.”
