Even if there had been no wonderful poetry in this book (which there is) , it would stand on its personal as a stunning tribute to children's illustration. Each section of poems--grouped by themes ranging from"Spooky Poems"to"Mostly Nonsense"--is illustrated by a distinct artist. You'll find biographical notes relating to the illustrators and indexes to the poems by title, first line, and author. Any collector of beautiful children's books--young or not so young--will sing a song of glee while leafing via this excellent collection. (Ages 4 to 9) This meaty choice of a lot more than 100 poems consists of many old favorites for example"The Gingerbread Man"by Rowena Bennett and poems by A. A. Milne and e. e. cummings, also as limericks, humorous verse, and contributions from numerous cultures. Nine Caldecott medalists are represented here, including Maurice Sendak, Arnold Lobel, and Leo and Diane Dillon.
