Reviews - What do customers think about Favorite Poems Old and New?

Poetry for Young and Old  Sep 1, 2007
I have had this book for years, ever since my family was very young. I purchased it myself. We spent many an evening sitting on the front porch with neighborhood children reading the poetry. The funniest time was when we had a neighbor from Japan read Jabberwocky. I remember that to this day. I think she laughed the hardest. There is a poem there for everyone. Now I bought the book for my grandchildren. One in particular loves and writes poetry, and I feel this will give her a chance to read all kinds of poetry. That is who I bought this last book for. It is a family book.
What a find!  Jan 12, 2007
As a homeschooling mother, I have searched for several years to find just the right poetry book. I have children ranging in age from 6-19, and wanted a wealth of poems that would span the broad age range. This book contains over seven hundred poems - so every time we open the book, we discover new treasures. We especially like the rhythm and rhyme that so many of the poems have. Although the book is organized by themes, it is indexed by title, author, and even first lines, so we can easily find our favorites the next time. If you only have space or money to buy one poetry book, this is the one!
Poetry Source  Mar 3, 2006
Great collection of poems for read aloud to younger children and for older children, copy and memeory work.
All the poetry you need  Sep 18, 2005
This is such a wonderfully complete book. We are using this as our full poetry curriculum in our home school. The poems are categorized wonderfully to help you find a poem for different topics and also there is a listing by author so you can study them individually. I love having all the poetry I need in one beautiful book. It is really full.
A childhood favorite  Sep 6, 2005
I can still recite a half-dozen poems from here, some xx years later. It has sooo many poems, some short, some long, some funny, some serious. What IS all this washing about??? Enjoy --
