Poetry Speaks to Children

10th. Anniversary Edition of this New York Times Best Selling Book & CD - Ages 4+

These strongly visual poems are illustrated to tickle children's interest! The whole family will enjoy 95 contemporary and classic poems by 75 poets.

Subjects range from giggle-inducing whimsy (The Dentist and The Crocodile by Roald Dahl) to thoughtful storytelling (Stopping by the Woods...... by Robert Frost) to cultural history (I Rise, I Rise by an anonymous Osage poet).

These poems are weighted toward subjects of interest to children: flashlights and chocolate, tree-climbing, art class, turning ten...

Of course, all poems are meant to be heard! Need inspiration? 50 of the poems are recorded, many read aloud by the poet. Includes index. Hardcover, 104 pages. CD, 58 tracks; run time 68:31.
