Format: Hardcover
Time for Poetry is an absolute gem. There are so many poetry collectives available, to find one that is so organized and full of both rare and popular works is truly wonderful. Written in 1951, it is chock full of lovely "old" poetry.
The book is separated into sections such as "The Animal Fair", "Round the Clock", "Round the Calendar", and "Wisdom and "Beauty", (and many more). I am a homeschooling mother of three small children, and enjoy the book immensely, and it can fit into any teaching approach, Charlotte Mason, Waldorf, etc. This book was my grandmother's, and she gave it to me when I had my first child. It is as full of short, sweet, fun, innocent poems as it is of classic grown-up pieces. It is presented as a teacher's anthology, and includes an index of authors, an index of titles, and an index of first lines, which is really helpful when you can only remember that first line!
All in all, a wonderful collection, a treasure to have for anyone, from 1 to 101. If this was the only book of poetry you owned, you would be all set for a long, long time.

Hundreds of poems in this collection. Even though the book is from a almost 50 years ago, the poems are wonderful for children, and for a teacher or parent's book collection. You can read these memorable poems to children. The great thing of this book is there is not much explanation, just poem after poem. It is hard to find such a rich collection today in poetry for children.

My reading teacher in elementry school used this book for our poetry lessons. To this day, I still remember some of the poems including Eletelephony, one of my favorites. A wonderful book to add to your library, or a great gift to someone you love.
