The Children's Own Longfellow

The Children's Own Longfellow Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Aptly referred to as the childrens poet, Longfellow wrote poems, many of which read as adventure stories that have been cherished by young readers and listeners through the years. Now a new generation of readers can read and enjoy some of Americas most often recited poetry. This new issue of the original, updated with a more contemporary jacket and beautifully illustrated by some of the best known American artists of the late nineteenth century, contains eight poems popular with children: The Wreck of the Hesperus, The Village Blacksmith, Evangeline, The Song of Hiawatha, The Building of the Ship, The Castle-Builder, Paul Reveres Ride, and The Building of the Long Serpent.

Synopsis:

This handsome volume contains eight of the most popular of Longfellow's poems, including "The Wreck of the Hesperus," "The Village Blacksmith," "Paul Revere's Ride," and excerpts from "The Song of Hiawatha."
 
This title has been selected as a Common Core Text Exemplar (Grades 6-8, Poetry)
