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.
I love the illustrations and the poems are pretty.
