Choose a Poem

What is your favourite poem?

Have a look through some poetry books and see if you can find a short poem that you really like.

The best way to read poetry is out loud – why not sit with a friend and take it in turns to read to each other?

When you find a poem that brings pictures to your mind you will have enough inspiration to turn it into a puppet show.

We used Benjamin Zephaniah’s poem This Orange Tree as an example.
