Overview

Join in the colour and excitement of festivals with these poems. Beginning with the dancing Chinese dragon welcoming in the New Year, help celebrate different traditional and religious festivals - each with their own costumes, feasts and songs. An irreverent and humorous look at festivals through poetry which includes a range of poems that are old and new, familiar and fantastical, poems containing patterned and predictable language and ones with more challenging vocabulary.
