Poetry is something I haven't much skill with and wasn't sure how to proceed with giving my children a love and understanding for itI'd picked up a couple children's poem collections but they weren't used much Then I tried the Harp and Laurel Wreath I started at the beginning reading it aloud to my 4 and 6 year olds They liked it so I read it every few days adding a poem or two each day Over the weeks they began to pick out favorites and request them then memorize them as they heard them over and over We now look forward to our poetry time The book takes poems from all the collections I had and more They are put in order of understanding and the author had the ability to choose some high interest ones for each age level and choose a variety of subjects This plus the suggestions for memory and dictation really cuts down on teacher time You just use it in order The excellent introduction tells how to use poetry and how good poetry is "formative for the soul" and trains it to the "right kind of internal movement" (p7 & 9) The book progresses through high school and adult poems with poetic vocabulary and definitions study questions (with answers and discussion for the difficult ones) which teach about rhyme and poets and especially help one understand the poem I've enjoyed reading some myself and look forward to reading more There are also some nonpoetic things like letters from George Washington and Patrick Henry and some Latin It is a good course in poetry that will take us from the beginnings through high school in the Charlotte Mason styleVery good information and variety especially for the price Thank you Laura M Berquist!

Helpful Morning Time Resource
My kindergartener has enjoyed learning poetry this year with these wonderful selections. She's memorized 12 poems, thus far. I'm so thankful for such a great resource that will grow with us for years to come!

Wonderful Poetry Anthology
I really love this poetry anthology. It makes it so easy for me to share the best poetry with my children and expose them to truth and beauty.
