This is a wonderful anthology of poetry, beautifully illustrated by well known children's artists. I have 6 grandchildren, ranging from babies to a 9 year old. This book has material for all ages, and it is well organized by subjects..."spooky poems", "mostly nonsense", etc. The kids love it and so do I.
Great for book club

Our girl's book club is reading this book of poems. Once they finish they will each get to keep a copy of the book. Poems are classic and the pictures are amazing. It's the best poem book so far!
A great addition of any bookshelf

This marriage of poetry and illustrations is like no other. As an educator I enjoy the layout of the book. The poems are divided into categories such as poems about weather, spooky poems, and animal poems. The illustrations are by Caldecott Medal artists - the best of the best! I have purchased countless copies of Sing a Song of Popcorn as it is a perfect gift to give to families to celebrate the arrival of a new baby. It is a book that all members of the family can enjoy - the young ones will enjoy the rhyming patterns of some of the poems and the silliness of others. The adults will treasure the inclusion of such classic poems as Robert Frost's "Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening" and Jack Prelutsky's entertaining "The Spaghetti Nut".

I thoroughly enjoyed this collection of poetry and the beautiful illustrations which accompany. As a kindergarten teacher, I found the anthology to be an invaluable resource for introducing young children (or any children) to the world of poetry. :
