9780060240134: These Small Stones
From School Library Journal:

Grade 2-6 A beautiful anthology of 60 poems celebrating ``all sorts of small things.'' Farber and Livingston's selections include a fine range of poets, from an anonymous 8th-Century Japanese writer to the familiar Neruda, Kennedy, Holman, Zolotow, and Reeves; haiku and nursery riddles also appear. Less than a third of the poems are available in other standard collections. In accordance with the book's theme, the selections tend to be brief. They avoid the grandiose and lofty in favor of the ordinary made suddenly new by the poet's vision. Roethke views ``The Minimal,'' startling readers with lines such as ``Lice tethered to long limp subterranean weeds.'' Many of the poems deal with nature: fireflies, frogs, birds, a shrew, snowflakes, dandelion puffs. Others examine such oddities as paper clips, jumping beans, decimal points. A small gem whose pages help readers ``To see the World in a Grain of Sand . . .And Eternity in an hour.'' Ellen D. Warwick, formerly at Thompson School, Arlington, Mass.
