Here is the list of titles from my Landing Book Shelves stash (with thanks to my daughter for the use of her books) that I used for the #PoetryinJune series (2013). I’ve included as much information as possible.
Ideally I would like to link each title with an illustration of the edition that I have used, but that may take a little time to put in place. I need to go though the list and link all of these items to the correct attachment pages. Another steep learning curve in prospect methinks!
