Michael Rosen mainly writes books for children. When he was twelve or thirteen he realised that he liked writing and trying out different kinds of writing. He would write about people he knew.
Michael Rosen worked for the BBC in the 1970s presenting programmes for schools. His first book was ‘Mind your own business‘. This was a book of poetry for children and he went on to write more books on poetry such as ‘Wouldn’t you like to know‘ and ‘You tell me‘.
As one of the first poets to visit schools, Michael Rosen inspired children about poetry.
‘We’re Going on a Bear Hunt‘ won the overall ‘NestlĂ© Smarties Book Prize‘ in 1989 and more recently the ‘Guinness World Record‘ for the largest reading lesson in 2014.
Michael Rosen continues to support children’s education and literature in schools.
