Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis loved literature, especially poetry. "Once you can express yourself," she wrote, "You can tell the world what you want from it...all the changes in the world, for good or evil, were first brought about by words." Now, Caroline Kennedy shares her mother's favorite poems and the words behind her strong belief in the power of literature. The poems presented span the centuries and include works by such renowned authors as Langston Hughes, William Shakespeare, Homer, W.B. Yeats, Emily Dickinson, E.E. Cummings, and Robert Frost. This volume also includes poems by Jacqueline Kennedy. The book is illustrated with photographs of the Kennedy family, and illuminated by Caroline's reflections on her mother's life and work. A wonderful volume for reading aloud or by yourself, a meaningful gift or keepsake, this book offers an intimate view of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis' world, and a poignant glimpse into her heart.

Review:

"One of the greatest gifts my brother and I received from my mother was her love of literature and language. In this anthology, I have tried to include poems that reflect things that were important to her — a spirit of adventure, the worlds of imagination and nature, and the strength of love and family." Caroline Kennedy

Review:

"If the chestnut count is high, so is the quality, and the few surprises...are knockouts." Booklist

Review:

"Great works that parents will enjoy reading to their children." People

Synopsis:

Loved this anthology. The diversity of the collection is great, and I fell in love with many of these and it was easy because of the format (divided by theme). Least favorite part: poems written by Jackie Kennedy...
I didn't read this for the First Lady, but found that the actual poetry is a good collection. So even if you don't really find yourself interested in the First Lady (which I was after reading this anthology) you may still love the poetry anyway.

I think I would love to read this book enjoying the inner thoughts of one of our first lady's in history. And hopping to read it one day to my children.
