9780091767488: Hutchinson Treasury Of Children's Poetry

This unforgettable, beautifully produced anthology brings together over three hundred of the best loved poems to open the door of the imagination and take children on an exploration of the fun and wonder of rhyme and verse. The treasury is divided into four sections, corresponding to age and includes the work of celebrated modern writers such as Michael Rosen, Roald Dahl and Sylvia Plath, as well as selections from Shakespeare, Lewis Carroll, T. S. Eliot and many more.

Review:

Perhaps your child is drawn to the written word like fog to the sea. (Lucky you!) More likely he or she prefers cartoons to Kipling. This well-chosen, irresistibly illustrated collection is sure to coax your wayward bibliophile away from the telly and into the world of reading.

Designed to grow with your youngster, The Hutchinson Treasury of Children's Poetry begins with a selection of best-loved nursery rhymes, then advances to action poems and increasingly complex works by such literary giants as Ted Hughes, Robert Louis Stevenson and Seamus Heaney. They'll relish, for instance, the wacky Roy Fuller's "Horrible Things":

"What's the horriblest thing you've seen?"
Said Nell to Jean.
"Some grey-coloured, trodden on plasticine;
On a plate, a left-over cold baked bean;
A cloak-room ticket numbered thirteen;
A slice of meat without any lean..."
The final section introduces young ones to the classics, including poems by Shelley, Yeats and Coleridge. Not only will your children delight in these time-honoured favourites, they'll be well- acquainted, when exam time comes around, with the statue of Ozymandias, the lake at Innisfree, and the wonders of Kubla Khan.

It's no easy task luring a child away from videos and computer games. Make your job easier with a book that truly is a treasure. --Martha Silano
