Review quote

"Well-organized anthology... The book has a stellar cast: Tennyson, Milton, Blake, Dickinson, and Bronte join more modern writers such as Ted Hughes, Sylvia Plath, W. H. Auden, Robert Frost... For poetry studies, for students who just enjoy the genre, and for the fascination with the millennia that is sure to transfer into reports, this collection is certainly of the moment."--School Library Journal"Wide-ranging, colorfully illustrated anthology... Best suited to YA readers, though many poems are excellent for reading aloud to younger children."--The Horn Book Guide"Both parents and children will enjoy these poems about seasons, memories, clocks, and the passage of time.... An enjoyable way for hildren to learn about time."--Bloomsbury Review"Poems to enjoy, poems for solace, poems for pure joy... This wonderful language experience goes on delighting the tongue and tickling the mind."--Teaching Pre K-8"Gives imaginations a grand invitation to soar, to ponder and wonder."--Atlanta Journal Constitution"Indeed a treasury...Older children and adults will be moved, or challenged, or tickled by the selections."--Children's Literature"It's the great poetry that kids and teachers will want to read aloud: Dylan Tomas' 'Fern Hill, ' Matthew Arnold's 'Dover Beach, ' Christina Rossetti's 'When I Am Dead, My Dearest, ' and nearly a hundred more."--Booklistshow more
