Great introduction to Poetry Jan. 10 2011
By LRK - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I think most children like animals...this book collects poems about animals by known authors with full, bright illustrations, and quick information about the poems/authors. Some poems have words defined to help children better understand the poems, and all say something about the author and the content of the poem...not a regurgitated, tell the child what to think explanation...just some helpful information. I usually don't read the extra info to my younger children unless they ask more questions. The poems selected are great...and there are quite a few. So far the favorite is The Tyger by William Blake. My five year old has it memorized. She loves Rudyard Kipling's poem about Mowgli learning to hunt with the wolf pack too...great repetition. Animals are a good start in developing an interest in poetry. We also have some of this series on specific poets, which are just as good, but the younger children aren't as interested in overall. The illustrations help with the youngest children...read them well and children like to listen, even when they don't understand.
