Editorial Reviews

“Among this abundance of funny poems, serious poems, story poems, poetic prose from the Bible, parents will find almost all those they want to share with their children. It makes a fat, generous, attractive book.”—Christian Science Monitor

“If your children don’t like poetry, expose them to this collection . . . and I defy them to resist its magic.”—Kirkus Reviews

    Found this jewel through SonLight curriculum. I've never cared for poetry, but I really enjoy this book. If I didn't have the book my kids would barely hear any. Some of the poems about landscapes were a bit hard to get through, but we looked forward to the next section. I imagine us enjoying these goodies even into highschool/college years.

    We have just started using this lovely book. I enjoy the wide range of poems. They are conveniently divided into sections, making it easy to find a poem for many different occasions. I have used it quite a bit in conjuntion with nature study topics we have covered. I expect it to be something we will use and love for many years to come, without having to purchase another poetry book.
