-- Table of Poems from Poem Finder®

From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 4 This collection of 66 poems about fantasy and imagination is carefully selected and cheerfully illustrated. The poems are all by well-known poets for children and adults. Each poem highlights an aspect of imaginative play, such as daydreaming, wishing, and seeing the magic in everyday things. Eight single-page and two double-page vividly colored paintings are filled with details from selected poems, and children will enjoy searching for these details. Bober's introduction stresses the value of imaginative play in the lives of children. While all of the poems in this collection can be found elsewhere, the emphasis on the imaginative life of children is unique to this one. Teachers and librarians wishing to encourage imaginative writing and speculative thinking as well as to provide models for poetry writing will find this to be a useful collection.
