I love, love, love this book of poetry for little ones. The poems are so fun to read aloud; they have a swing that is almost like dancing.
Yolen's compilation is wide and varied, which makes it all the more pleasurable. My boys enjoy the text and are intrigued by the rich and colorful illustrations. The poems vary in length as well, which keeps it exciting.
Go out and buy it, I say. It would be a lovely addition to a personal library or a great gift for anyone with little ones. Or at the very least, get it from the library.
It is delightfully charming.
