Poetry's allure -- it rhymes, rhythms, and rich imagery -- can best be appreciated when read aloud. And what a delightful way for children and adults to spend time together! This thematic collection of over 150 poems, which includes selections from Shakepeare, Tennyson, the Bible, from modern poets such as Robert Frost and Ted Hughes, and the works of Carribean, African and Native American Poets, has been compiled with an emphasis on choosing works particularly suited for reading aloud. With its stand-out dramatic color illustrations and its simple black and white line drawings, all of which echo the mood and meaning of the poetry, it is a terrific gift any family would cherish.
