Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

Even if there were no wonderful poetry in this book (which there is), it would stand on its own as a stunning tribute to children's illustration. Nine Caldecott medalists are represented here, including Maurice Sendak, Arnold Lobel, and Leo and Diane Dillon. This meaty selection of more than 100 poems includes many old favorites such as "The Gingerbread Man" by Rowena Bennett and poems by A.A. Milne and e.e. cummings, as well as limericks, humorous verse, and contributions from many cultures. Each section of poems--grouped by themes ranging from "Spooky Poems" to "Mostly Nonsense"--is illustrated by a different artist. You'll find biographical notes about the illustrators and indexes to the poems by title, first line, and author. Any collector of beautiful children's books--young or not so young--will sing a song of glee while leafing through this excellent collection. (Ages 4 to 9)

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. :

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".

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.

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!
