More Description

A magical collection of best-loved poems, perfect for introducing young readers to the joy, solace, and beauty of poetry Whether one is after a poem that is charming, funny, sad, silly, magical, sleepy, long, or short, there's something in here for every occasion. From Lear's "The Owl and the Pussycat" to Tennyson's "The Charge of the Light Brigade" to Eliot's "Macavity the Mystery Cat," these are poems to pass down the generations. Themed sections include Growing Up ("maggie and milly and molly and may" by Cummings), Humor and Nonsense ("Jabberwocky" by Carroll), Tell Me a Tale ("The Raven" by Poe), Lessons for Life ("Caged Bird" by Angelou), and more. Besides a traditional index, there is a list in back of poems to turn to if you need courage, if you seek guidance, if you are facing grief, or if you need a pocket full of peace, instilling in young readers the habit of turning to poetry for help, solace, and pleasure. There is also a helpful glossary of poetic terms. A favorite poem will stay with you for life, and this beautifully illustrated collection for young and old is sure to delight and entertain for years.
