Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

AARP has a mission: to nurture relationships between the generations, and transmit wisdom from grandparent to grandchild. How better to achieve this goal than through poetry? It forges an almost magical connection between people-encouraging conversation, nurturing intimacy, feeding the imagination, delighting the senses.

Teacher, poet, and grandmother Celestine Frost has gathered 175 of her favorite verses and compiled them in a magnificent illustrated anthology meant for sharing. These are the poems she has read aloud to her own children and grandchildren and they explore life in all its richness, from home and family to school, nature, and animals. Even serious topics-including death-receive their due in such masterpieces as Dylan Thomas's “Do Not Go Gentle into that Good Night.”  These have their place in an anthology for grandchildren and grandparents, alongside the playful nursery rhymes and nonsense verses.

No child's library-and no loving grandparent-should be without this unique and precious volume.
