We had this book when I was growing up and I would never be without a copy. It is so much fun to read poems aloud. My mother's favorite was "Abdull Abubul Amir". I remember reading "Casey at the Bat" to my nephew when he was about five. There are so many wonderful poems there is something for everyone.

Miss Felleman has compiled THE poetry collection for you here. There is something for everybody. If you read poetry all the time or just a little every now and then , you could do no better.

I can't say enough wonderful things about this book of poetry. It's quite possible if I were to be stranded on a desert island and could only take one book with me, this would be the one I would take. My mother read to me from this as I was growing up, and I never thought a thing about learning Wordsworth as well as Mother Goose, to me they were all poetry. Now I savor this volume, and be it Poe or Browning, I have wonderful memories of childhood while I read the classics contained within the tome.
