'Stoke Reads' are excited to share this year's 'Big Poetry' read poem. We would like the whole City to recite the 'Read to Me' poem below on Friday 10th June (ideally at 11am). This is part of the City's campaign to instil a love of reading across the City. The event links to this year's 'Hot Air' literary festival and will be featured as part of the Sentinel's 'Big Read' campaign. Please get involved and let us know if you are planning any events you would like us to promote or share as a news story with the Sentinel by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Read to Me
By Jane Yolen
Read to me riddles and read to me rhymes
Read to me stories of magical times
Read to me tales about castles and kings
Read to me stories of fabulous things
Read to me pirates and read to me knights
Read to me dragons and dragon-book fights
Read to me spaceships and cowboys and then
When you are finished- please read them again.
