Review:

The ideal poetry for children is often thought to be silly rhymes or doggerel. The editors of this book have adopted a more ambitious approach that encourages parents not to underestimate the ability of their children to understand and absorb the music of poetry -- especially when read aloud. In collaboration with a special advisory board, they have selected a surprisingly rich collection of poetry -- from traditional childhood standards to "real" poems -- that emphasizes the fun, diversity, and richness of poetry.

From the Back Cover:

Bringing together essential classic children's poems with the best of modern and contemporary international poetry, A Child's Anthology of Poetry is an indispensable introduction to literature and life for the young reader.

The simple pleasures of reading and listening to poetry are unforgettable memories of childhood, and, for young minds, poetry is the gateway to an interest in language and storytelling. From Robert Frost to Maya Angelou, Shel Silverstein to Emily Dickinson, this collection emphasizes the fun and diversity of poetry, providing readers with a well-rounded, inclusive selection of poets. With the guidance of a special advisory board of esteemed poets—Deborah Digges, Gerald Early, Louise Glück, Jorie Graham, Edward Hirsch, Garrett Hongo, Maxine Kumin, Cynthia MacDonald, William Matthews, Thylias Moss, Ishmael Reed, Sarah Rosenstock, and Mark Strand—the editors have fashioned a delightful volume that encourages parents not to underestimate their children's ability to appreciate the music of the written word.
