I enjoyed this, as I enjoy poetry. I believe the poems are bit outdated and that not all of the students would find it fun and interesting. Some of the poems almost seem a little bleak for younger students, such as the one about a boy being eaten by a lion. If I was to use this, I would pull out certain poems that were funny or taught a lesson so that I could monitor which ones I believed to be appropriate.

Large compilation of poems (by numerous poets) intended for children. Incredible assortment of types of poems and poem subject matter. Share poems with children as either an introduction to poetry or as poetry practice. Different types and levels of poetry appropriate for any elementary classroom.

I met Isabel Wilner during a course on Children' Literature at Towson University. What a grand librarian she has been. The poems in this book are definitely meant for sharing and I have used them with much success for 20 years now.
