About this Recording


Classic Poems for Boys comprises a delightfully varied set of poems for 5–10-year olds. From rousing favourites like Felicia Dorothea Hemans’s Casabianca and John Keats’s A Song About Myself, to dreamy, thoughtful poems by Robert Louis Stevenson and Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, this is a collection to be treasured.
