I think that I found this poetry book to be my favorite. The reason that I enjoyed this book so much is because it had poems that I had even heard of when I was growing up and brought back so good memories. I think that there was a good combination of serious and funny poems. I also was fascinated with the illustrations on the pages as well. I found that the poems were very imaginative and fun to read. I recommend this book to any one. Some of my favorite poems would be Jabberwocky and Beautiful ...more

This is the poetry collection I grew up reading and I still love it. The selection of poems is fantastic, with some of my favourite poems in it. The poems are separated by theme, so there's a mix of subjects, and they have a good mix of serious and humourous poems. Most of the poems are not so childish that they can't be enjoyed into adulthood. The illustrations are absolutely beautiful and a joy to look at.

I would recommend this collection to anyone looking for a simple but fantastic selection

This book would probably be my favorite out of all the listed poetry books. I feel as though children would be familiar with all of the poems that are listed within this book. Pre-K students would love this! I would use it in a Pre-K class or even a Kindergarten class.
