Anneliese Emmans Dean – Poems

Anneliese Emmans Dean

‘Learn about some of Britain’s best-loved birds through laughter, rhythm and rhyme with acclaimed poet and performer Anneliese Emmans Dean. In each bite-size video, Anneliese brings to life a poem from her award-winning book ‘Flying High! Discover the poetry in British birds’ – and then encourages you to have a go at performing the poem yourself! The videos also include facts about the featured bird, so you end up fully ‘edu-tained’!

‘Made me chuckle, even laugh out loud with pleasure!’ – Prof. Sir John Lawton, RSPB Vice-President

Buy your copy of Flying High! at all good book sellers, or direct from the publishers at Brambleby Books

And if you do perform any of the poems yourself, we’d love to see your video! Share it on Twitter @Birdfair or on facebook
