This glorious collection of poems might have been designed for the Montessori classroom. The poems are organized by the calendar year, revolving around seasons and celebrations, so they meld beautifully with annual natural and cultural cycles.
Selected to inspire a love of language, the collection includes poems and lyrics from over 75 poets and songwriters. Some are famous (Emily Dickinson, Langston Hughes, Robert Frost), others less famous, and a few are written by Julie Andrews and her daughter.
Vibrant illustrations by a Caldecott honoree capture the spirit of the words on the page. Includes an index. Hardcover, 192 pages.
