This book is a collection of different little fun poems for children to enjoy. I even found a bible verse as one of the poems, each page is filled colorful and ties along with each poem. ( )

This anthology is beautifully illustrated with colorful paintings by Jon Muth. They are truly fine paintings indeed. The collection is divided into several sections: About Me, That’s So Silly, Animals, The Seasons, Seashore, Adventure, and Bedtime.

Some of these poems I recognized because they were part of my childhood or because they're quite well-known; others, though, are delightfully new to me. Happiness, by A.A. Milne is an example of one of these new poems.

I love the idea of learning poems by heart. As an exercise I think we can ask our elementary students to choose a poem to remember and recite. I was asked to do this for a few poems and the result has been that I still remember them. They come back to me on walks or when I need them. ( )

A Family of Poems – My Favorite Poetry for Children is an especially fine collection of poetry. Caroline was raised with poems. She was encouraged to write them, to illustrate them, to choose a favorite poem and use it in a birthday card. “If our parents read to us as children, we remember the closeness of the moments together, the sound and power of voice and expression, the sense of wonder that a poem inspires,” said Caroline Kennedy as she shared thoughts about piecing this anthology together. Ms. Kennedy wrote the introduction for the entire book and then for each of the seven sections. She includes memories from her childhood, the importance of poetry in her life, along with thoughts about the power of reading together.

This book has over 100 poems from well-known authors (A.A. Milne, Robert Louis Stevenson, Jack Prelutsky, Robert Frost, William Wordsworth, T.S. Eliot, Carl Sandberg, William Shakespeare) two poems by her mother, and poetry from the Bible. These poems are placed into sections reflecting a child’s world: About Me, That’s So Silly, Animals, The Seasons, The Seashore, Adventure, and Bedtime.

A sampling:

About Me:“‘Hope’ is the Thing with Feathers” by Emily Dickinson and “The Road Not Taken” by Robert Frost
That’s So Silly:“Happiness” by A. A. Milne and “Today is Very Boring” by Jack Prelutsky
Animals:“The Porcupine” by Ogden Nash and “The Crocodile” by Lewis Carroll
Seasons:“Ecclesiastes 3:1-8” Holy Bible, “Stopping by the Woods on a Snowy Evening” by Robert Frost, and “The Daffodils” by William Wordsworth
Seashore:“Sea Joy” by Jacqueline Bouvier and “Maggie and Milly and Molly and May” by e.e. cummings
Adventure: “The Owl and the Pussy-Cat” by Edward Lear and “Goblin Feet” by J. R. R. Tolkien
Bedtime:“Sweet and Low” by Alfred Lord Tennyson and “Keep a Poem in Your Pocket” by Beatrice Schenk de Regniers

There is a Table of Contents and an Index for finding just the poem you need for any given moment. Near the end, the poems that were not written in English to begin with are written in their original language, making it rather enjoyable to read when you know one or more of these languages or if you are up for learning a poem in its native tongue.

The illustrations are outstanding and beautifully dance with each poem. Jon J Muth is an exceptional artist, binding each poem with a painting or drawing, making this anthology such a delight to read and share.

“Growing up in Cincinnati, Ohio, I drew and drew and drew and drew, and painted. Drawing was my way of making things exist which didn’t exist. And writing became a way to have my drawings interact. My mother was an art teacher and she took me to visit museums all over the United States. I studied painting, drawing and printmaking in several schools here and in Europe.” ( )
