Product Description:

This striking poetry collection explores the gamut of human experience (both mundane and significant). Poems are topically arranged: self; family; friendship and love; nonsensical; school; sports and games; war; nature; and fantasy (fairies, ogres and witches). Selections span great poetry (long and short) from ancient to modern, thought provoking to silly, traditionally child-focused to typically adult. This volume is filled with predictable (Paul Revere's Ride; Casey at the Bat; We Real Cool) and surprising (The Gettysburg Address; Ovid's Metamorphoses; Cremation of Sam McGee). Sources range from the Bible, Shakespeare and Chaucer to Gertrude Stein, Milne, and Langston Hughes. Pages are fully illustrated in gorgeous water color. Includes section introductions by Caroline Kennedy, dust jacket and indexes of first lines and authors' last names. An heirloom to love, read aloud and memorize; parents may wish to preview. A Layers of Learning choice. 192 pgs, hc. ~ Ruth

Publisher Description:

There's a poem to celebrate every moment in life-whether it's hitting a home run, watching a sunset, or laughing with your best friend. A poem is a gift of the heart that can inspire, reassure, or challenge us. Memorize it-share it-it's yours forever.

In this diverse collection, a companion to her New York Times#1 best-seller A Family of Poems, Caroline Kennedy has chosen more than a hundred poems that speak to all of us: the young and young at heart, readers new to poetry and devoted fans. These poems explore deep emotions, as well as ordinary experiences. They cover the range of human experience and imagination. Divided into sections about nature, sports, monsters and fairies, friendship and family, this book is full of surprises. Each section is preceded by Caroline's thoughtful introduction reflecting her own family's engagement with and enjoyment of poetry.
