Children's Treasury of Poems
What child's bookshelf is complete without a superbly illustrated collection of classic poems? This exquisitely produced anthology will become a beloved family favorite. Featuring the most renowned creators of children's verse, it makes the perfect read-aloud and an ideal introduction to poetry's rhyme and rhythm. Kids will love listening to the imaginative words of Lewis Carroll ("How Doth the Little Crocodile?"); Kate Greenaway ("The Cats Have Come to Tea"); Edward Lear ("The Owl and the Pussycat"); Vachel Lindsay ("The Little Turtle"); and many others. As in the previous Treasury titles, Linda Bleck's colorful artwork has a fresh, fun feel that will appeal to children.
What a charming collection of those rhymes and stories we all know so well, and many we may not. Each book has colorful, whimsical illustrations that go with the text giving them wide appeal. I think they have a bit of a nostalgic look. If you are looking for read-alouds, those kind of books with "ear" appeal, then you have found them! The sing-song rhythms roll off your tongue. A set of these would make a lovely gift to anyone with small children.
Prayers and Lullabies have Christian content, but the others do not.
Each book is 9x9" with a different colored polka-dotted spine. 28pp, sc ~Sara
