Picture Poems by Michael and Peter Benton (Hodder amp; Stoughton pound;8.99) is a hit with Patricia Sealey, English co-ordinator at William Alvey junior school, Sleaford, Lincolnshire.
"This is a collection of poems inspired by a wide range of paintings and other artwork by Monet through to Salvador Dali. It begins with Leonardo da Vinci's epigraph: 'A poem is a painting that is not seen. A painting is a poem that is not heard.' Vaious poets, from Beverley Naidoo to Alan Brownjohn, have responded with more than 40 poems. A further selection of paintings, sculptures and teaching suggestions, covering many topics, gives plenty of scope for children and teachers.
What would you rescue if the school was on fire, and why? We pay pound;40 for each recommendation published. Write to Love it, TES Friday, Admiral House, 66-68 East Smithfield, London E1W 1BX
