The children at my local primary school who encouraged me to write these poems for them weekly over some years, also asked me to make this website for them as they wanted to come to their favourite poems again - but they especially asked me to make a listening page for them as they enjoyed listening to my poems weekly.  There is so much benefit for children in just relaxing for five minutes in a day and shutting off from reading and writing and to just simply relax and listen to a poem being read.  I do hope you'll tell your children that by simply Googling JOSIE'S POEMS they too can come here on their computers at home - and quite safely of course.  Josie
