This is a collection of poems for young children that features beautiful famous artwork. I thought that this book was very lovely and a great book to introduce younger children into different genres including poetry! I thought that the poems were unique and heartfelt, and I thought that the artwork that was included helped to illustrate the poems.

Education schools ought to make this required reading for anyone wishing to teach English in the primary grades.

I appreciated the novel approach of the author who distinguished poetry as a separate language in his discussion of the nature of poetry. His clear prose and use of examples from great poems helped make this a rich source for both those new to poetry and more experienced poetry lovers.

Everything I wanted to know about poetry at the time. It's one of those young-adult books thats useful and pleasurable for us elders too.
