Customer comments on this Youngstown Ohio Book
Great collection of poetry, all in one book
This is a great collection of poetry for children. It's all the best poetry in one book. It's like a "greatest hits" CD. Everything in it is good. Being a homeschool family, we use this book a lot!! I highly recommend it.
A Wonderful Present
This a beautiful collection of poetry for children of all ages. I have given this as a gift to new parents, parents, and grandparents, as well as, to children.
WONDERFUL Anthology that my kids have actually read on their own....
I have about 20 anthologies of poetry for children, and this is clearly the best in my collection. The poems are beautifully crafted and many are fairly complex, yet they are all accessible and interesting to children (mine are finishing up 1st & 2nd grade). Plus the watercolor illustrations are absolutely exquisite.
The other thing I love about this book is its integrity. This does not appear to be a random selection of poems chosen by an unrelated committee of people (like some of my other anthologies). As diverse as the poetry selections are, there is still something coherent about them -- they fit together and work together in a very satisfying way.
I highly recommend this book.
