- A Children's Treasury of Poems meet my expectations. The book arrived on time and it arrived in excellent condition. The book is age appropriate and it is what I expected. It was one of several books I ordered for my grandson. He likes it, along with the other books. And I hope it will be a real learning experience for him, especially with the current dumbing down of American education.
- The illustration on the cover is what attracted me to the book. It's so cute! I do wish the pages where a little thicker like a traditional board book. I keep the book up from my son's other books because it is too thin and he would damage it pretty easily. The poems are fun and the illustrations inside the book are as cute as the cover.
- I got this when my son was a baby and have been reading it to him since he was a year old. At that age, he just loved the rhythm of the poems even though he couldn't understand. Now at 6, he still loves the poetry and can remember much of it from heart. Poetry teaches children the love of language.
- Purchased to teach preschoolers about rhyming poems. My grandkids enjoy the simple poems in this book. Good buy.
- A Children's Treasury of Poems contains a wonderful sampling of quality children's poetry. The selected poems represent varying lengths and styles, from short four-line limericks to the nonsense poem "The Owl and the Pussycat" (three stanzas, eleven lines each). In addition to the writers mentioned in the synopsis, Robert Louis Stevenson is another who is very well represented in this collection.This 9x9 board book has sturdy pages and binding. I purchased it when C was just over a year old, and now, after 2 1/2 years of toddler use, it is still in great condition. The pages are embossed, giving little ones a bit of a tactile experience.Linda Bleck's illustrations are fabulous. There are subtle hints of a classic look, which meshes perfectly with these traditional poetry selections. As you can tell from the cover, the illustrations are also colorful, bright, fun, and so cute!This is quality children's poetry in a book with visual and tactile appeal.
