1.0 out of 5 stars Book had mold June 25 2014
By aem
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I rated the copy sent to me as low because the book had mold in it. The poetry and illustrations are wonderful. I got this copy for my mother. She gave me a copy when I when I was a child. Still love it. Not impressed by a moldy copy however. Not at all.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not just for kids - a superior survey of classic poetry. Dec 1 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
I have read this so many times my copy is literally falling apart. I am 37, and to this day entire phrases still ring in my head from classics like The Highwayman, Paul Revere's Ride and Jabberwocky ("beware the Jub-jub bird and shun the frumious Bandersnatch!"). In fact, when I took the GRE several years back, my acquaintance with this collection was of more value than my college literature classes. Not only for children - although I would buy a copy for every child I care about if it was still in print.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Tiger, tiger, burning bright..." Feb. 27 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
...Begins one of my many favorites introduced to me by this book. My mother (a librarian) first read poems such as "Wynken, Blynken, and Nod" to me from this book, and I continued to read them until a hiatus where a young man disdains poetry as not being macho. I rediscovered many an old friend when I started reading these poems to my own children. Now the book is in tatters (glueback bindings do not stand the test of time, especially not in dry Colorado), and I search for a replacement. If the reissue has indeed been 'sanitized' in the name of political correctness, then I fear much will have been lost, and I will be reduced to trying to rebind my tatters.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Gold Mine Jan. 6 2000
By Ruthann Rawlings - Published on Amazon.com
I fell in love with this book in my elementary library. I've paid enough late fines on it in the last 15 years to have bought the book several times over. It's here that I fell in love with Lady Clair and a million other classics that have resurfaced over and over in my classes in grade school and college. I want my own copy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Best collection of children's poetry Jan. 25 1998
By dtstroup@grove.net - Published on Amazon.com
I am 45; I grew up with this book as our family poetry book-I am no poet but gained magic from having this book on the upstairs shelves to read when I wanted to--my folks didn't push it. I know there are many others but this one let poetry into the life of a hard core boy. I would like to get it for my son.

5.0 out of 5 stars Changed my life July 1 2013
By Verita - Published on Amazon.com
This was a favorite. I think it changed my life when I was just a child. I became a poetry lover and am one still. Simple, beautiful poems appropriate for children but not childish at all. Whitman, Hopkins, many famous poets included here. All these years later I can still remember lines from it. Genevieve Taggard's Millions of Strawberries came to me while I was eating strawberries a friend gave me. Although I could not remember the title, thanks to the wonders of the internet, I searched for the lines I remember and found the text. Then, I went to the bookshelf (I still have the book) and read it and many others. Fond, fond memories.
