Encourage a love of language by reading aloud from this outstanding poetry anthology. Magnificent, luminous illustrations and the breadth of the collection set this volume apart from the many poetry books for children.

Childhood favorites, such as Milne's Furry Bear and Stevenson's The Land of Counterpane, are rendered freshly appealing here, juxtaposed with more mature selections, such as Langston Hughes' Dreams and Rainer Maria Rilke's The Panther.

When read aloud, these poems beautifully capture the music of Western poetry. The collection reflects the full range of human experience, from the wonder of childhood to the tragedy of war. 74 poems indexed by title, author, and first line. Hardcover, 128 pages. Recommended for all ages.
