Even if there were no wonderful poetry in this book (which there is), it would stand on its own as a stunning tribute to children's illustration. Nine Caldecott medalists are represented here, including Maurice Sendak, Arnold Lobel, and Leo and Diane Dillon. This meaty selection of more than 100 poems includes many old favorites such as "The Gingerbread Man" by Rowena Bennett and poems by A.A. Milne and e.e. cummings, as well as limericks, humorous verse, and contributions from many cultures. Each section of poems--grouped by themes ranging from "Spooky Poems" to "Mostly Nonsense"--is illustrated by a different artist. You'll find biographical notes about the illustrators and indexes to the poems by title, first line, and author. Any collector of beautiful children's books--young or not so young--will sing a song of glee while leafing through this excellent collection. (Ages 4 to 9)
