Forget-Me-Nots: Poems to Learn by Heart Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

When you learn a poem by heart, it becomes a part of you. You know it in your mind, in your mouth, in your ears, in your whole body. And best of all, you know it forever.

From the creators of the bestselling You Read to Me, I'll Read to You series comes this new collection of poems especially suitable for learning by heart and saying aloud. With personal introductions by former Children's Poet Laureate Mary Ann Hoberman — as well as her own time-tested tips and tools for memorization and recitation — and vivid illustrations by Michael Emberley featuring his trademark wit and lively characters, Forget-Me-Nots includes more than 120 works from both classic and contemporary poets, from childhood favorites to lesser-known treasures.

This anthology will inspire a love of learning poetry!

Review:

"Former children's poet laureate Hoberman compiles a broad range of poems for young readers — brief enough to invite memorization — from writers including Frost, Silverstein, Sandburg, Milne, and Grimes, among many more. The works are divided thematically into categories like 'Sad and Sorrowful,' which features 'Song' by Keats and 'My Father' by Hoberman ('My father doesn't live with us./ It doesn't help to make a fuss;/ But still I feel unhappy, plus/ I miss him'); 'Weather and Seasons'; and 'Poems from Storybooks,' with excerpts from The Wind in the Willows, James and the Giant Peach, and The Fellowship of the Ring. Emberley offers cozy mixed-media cartoons, which warmly evoke the poems' themes and images. A multidimensional and thoughtful cross section of verse with keepers on nearly every page. All ages. Agent: Gina Maccoby, Gina Maccoby Literary Agency." Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
