This could be pleasant listening for new parents needing a break. (AudioFile Magazine)
While there's no denying this treasury's value as a gift book, it's of equal or greater value to every good library of poetry. (Booklist, starred review)
Verse from sources ranging from the Bible and traditional songs to Dickinson, Yeats, Frost, and contemporary poets make Morning Song an exceptional listening experience, and a superb gift for new parents everywhere. Highly recommended. (The Midwest Book Review)
This marvelous, much-needed anthology will cast a lasting glow over new parents and children alike, not to mention the relatives and friends who care for them. (Stephen Young, program director of The Poetry Foundation)
Who better than our most beloved poets to translate all that is unspeakable about our most beloved children---this joy and terror, this terrible love that has bewitched us---into words, into grace. I read the collection in one sitting and then lurched out of bed to watch my own sleeping babies and sigh into the moonlight. (Catherine Newman, author of Waiting for Birdy: A Year of Frantic Tedium, Neurotic Angst, and the Wild Magic of Growing a Family)
This collection is poignant, inspiring, thoughtful and fun. (Deseret News) --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
