In March 2009 the British Library will open an exhibition on the history of children’s poetry called ‘Twinkle Twinkle Little Bat: 250 Years of Poetry for Children’. There will be a two-day conference on 20 & 21 April and a teachers’ day on 12 May accompanying the exhibition. For more information, visit www.educ.cam.ac.uk.
