We are Britain, is a very well put together collection of poetry celebrating the uniqueness of twelve different ethnic children giving a very true reflection of modern Britain today.
The poems talk about us all being individuals, the way we dress and the foods we eat through to our different culture and identities.
The poems are very easy to read with lots of rhyme and rhythm. Adding photographs of children to each of the poems make the poem more 'real' for the reader.
This is an excellent resource to have in the classroom as it really does celebrate our uniqueness and multi-cultural society. I have used this book with children aged 7 and above and they absolutely loved the poems! We are Britain could be used during circle time with children and open discussion about how different we all are, ultimately teaching them, 'it's ok to be different'
Mr Zephaniah is a true genius! Highly recommended!
