Review:

The ideal poetry for children is often thought to be silly rhymes or doggerel. The editors of this book have adopted a more ambitious approach that encourages parents not to underestimate the ability of their children to understand and absorb the music of poetry -- especially when read aloud. In collaboration with a special advisory board, they have selected a surprisingly rich collection of poetry -- from traditional childhood standards to "real" poems -- that emphasizes the fun, diversity, and richness of poetry.

From the Back Cover:
