Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"A collection of 32 poems...A short introductory biography...gives an insightful glimpse into his life and how it influenced his poems....illustrations convey the poetic notion of a romantic childhood memory, with pink-cheeked children...Muted colors, rich with warm golden accents among the dominant green tone, are a peaceful accompaniment to the poems."--School Library Journal. "These poems...are colorfully illustrated and notable for their detailed brushstrokes of gentle colors. They interpret the verse in a style that is fanciful without looking too juvenile for a middle-grade audience. Younger children will find the poems and illustrations to their liking as well."--Booklist.

Synopsis:

An illustrated collection of thirty-two popular poems by Robert Louis Stevenson, mostly from "A Child's Garden of Verses". Includes an introduction about the poet's life and work.

Synopsis:

This anthologyand#8212;now with a new cover and a fresh redesignand#8212;makes an especially gorgeous addition to the bestselling, critically acclaimed series. Two "Poetry for Young People" veterans have combined talents to create an absolutely charming collection, perfect for the classroom or to read aloud at home. With works by such poets as Shakespeare, Langston Hughes, e.e. cummings, and Nikki Giovanni, plus haikus for every season, it spans the year exquisitely.
