Show children the beauty of poetry with "A Child's Introduction to Poetry: Listen While You Learn About the Magic Words That Have Moved Mountains, Won Battles, and Made Us Laugh and Cry."
This collection of 64 famous poems for kids (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. The Classic Poetry Book also provides a great introduction to poetry for all ages.
