Listen While You Learn About the Magic Words That Have Moved Mountains, Won Battles, and Made Us Laugh and Cry
This collection of 64 poems for children (from Homer to Wordsworth to Angelou) holds far more than most. First, readers learn about many forms of poetry--such as nursery rhyme, ballad, haiku, sonnet and more. They "meet" each poet in brief, lively mini-biographies. For days when you can't read aloud together, they can read along and listen to a professional actor read each selection on the companion CD. Fun and inviting.
