A marvelous collection of 26 favorite and less familiar poems featuring over 30 winning illustrations and contributions by renowned authors including William Shakespeare, Emily Dickinson, D.H. Lawrence, and James Joyce. Just the right size for small hands, this attractive book makes an excellent introduction to the classic themes of poetry.
Some delightful poems are included in this small anthology, and the illustrations are just beautiful. Most of the poems are classics, and the majority are metered, which was very satisfying after having read so many unmetered poems recently. It's hard to put an age bracket to this book. Anyone from 2 to 100 I guess, as some of the poems are sweet and simple, and others are deeper, with more complex vocabulary and ideas.
