This tenth-anniversary reissue of a timeless collection celebrates the joys of poetry for children of all ages. 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 poetsâ?”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 Strandâ?”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. It is a volume that will be treasured by generations of readers.

Featuring artwork by Tom Pohrt, the well-known illustrator of Crow and Weasel, and including favorite poems such as William Blake's "The Tyger" and Lewis Carroll's "Jabberwocky," in addition to more-recent classics such as Elizabeth Bishop's "Sestina" and Theodore Roethke's "My Papa's Waltz," A Child's Anthology of Poetry is full of surprises and lyric charm.

I am so happy with this volume! There is none of the standard doggerel and silliness that is usual presented as children's poetry. The poems chosen here are magnificent, moving, daring, and even somewhat subversive, as they ask the listener to really feel, and think. If we want our children to reach beyond themselves, then we have to give them something to reach for. Thank you for this anthology!

All of my favorite poems to read with my children and a few more that are new to me. What a wonderful collection.

A fantastic collection of great poetry with children in mind. Reading aloud with your kids will almost certainly engender a love of poetry and as a parent, I have finally learned to enjoy poetry because I am now reading it aloud (as it is meant to be) and talking about it with my kids. Excellent source for homeschooling as well. Copying and memorizing poetry (and well-written prose, too!), even if you are not homeschooling, is an excellent way to encourage great writing for your own children.

Excellent collection of poems for kids and adults alike. I use them in my fourth and fifth grade reading classes, and the kids love them.

I bought five copies of this book, and sent them to friends who are teachers. I kept one for myself. Absolutely the best poetry book for elementary grade school kids. And for me, as an adult. My friends all LOVED this book.

Delighted with my purchase. The book arrived as described by the Seller and it arrived ahead of schedule. Couldn't be happier.

I'm glad they decided to put this book back in print. I have a new grandson, and I'm so glad to have this book to read to him. Some great classics are included. We'll really enjoy our poetry bonding time.
My 12-year old tutoring student loved it! Great for reading out loud, fulfills school reading assignments, etc. Definitely recommend it!
