LOVE this book. My mom read it to me when I was about 7 and that's when I found out that I love poetry. The pictures are beautiful and it's a great selection of poems and excerpts of poems for a younger audience. Emily Dickinson will always be my favorite.

Hard to rate because it's clearly much more than "ok" but *I* didn't particularly like it. I'm just not imaginative enough, or whatever, to appreciate Emily Dickinson's poetry, even though I do love Tudor's art. Ah well. Despite my low rating, I do recommend this to anyone interested in either artist.
A cute little illustrated book of some of the magical poetry by Emily Dickinson. It is divided into the four seasons, complete with beautiful pictures and well put together. Although it was not my type of poetry, I defiantly saw many sparks of genius in her writing.
This is gorgeous--a feast for the eyes and the spirit. Dickinson's poetry paired with Tudor's lovely illustrations makes for a book that I want to return to over and over. This is one I would like to own!
