Winner of the Waterstones Children's Gift of the Year 2018, this lavish poetry collection is a perfect present for any age.

I Am the Seed That Grew the Tree: A Nature Poem For Every Day Of The Year, named after the first line of Judith Nicholls' poem 'Windsong', is a beautifully illustrated gift book treasury of 366 animal poems - one for every day of the year, including leap years. Filled with familiar favourites and new discoveries, written by a wide variety of poets, including John Agard, William Blake, Emily Bronte, Charles Causley, Walter de la Mare, Emily Dickinson, Carol Ann Duffy, Eleanor Farjeon, Robert Frost, Thomas Hardy, Roger McGough, Christina Rossetti, William Shakespeare, John Updike, William Wordsworth and many more, this collection of daily poems is the perfect poetry anthology for children (and grown-ups!). Whether you are 8 or 88, you'll find poems to share at the beginning of the day, or at bedtime, or just to dip into whenever you might like.
