Noted poet Lee Bennett Hopkins has edited or authored numerous books for children, including the I Can Read Books Hamsters, Shells, and Spelling Bees; A Pet for Me: Poems; and the ALA Notable Children's Book Surprises. The recipient of a Christopher Award and the University of Southern Mississippi's Medallion for "lasting contributions to children's literature," Mr. Hopkins lives in Florida.From School Library Journal:
An attractively designed update of a standard title about introducing children to poetry, last published in 1987. Six poets have been added to the biography section, and a few have been cut; the essays have been revised to reflect the writers' work of the last 10 years. The section that offers activities aimed at exciting children about poetry has been shortened in the new edition, containing about half the number of headings, though some have been combined rather than eliminated; since they are meant to be starting points, nothing is lost in the paring down. If you have an older edition and find the biography section useful, buy the newer version. If you use it mainly for the examples of poetry forms and activities, you probably don't need it. If you don't own any version, this a must-purchase.
