"I'm shouting
I'm singing
I'm swinging through trees..."

A comprehensive collection of favorite poems that children and parents, young and old, can enjoy reading out loud together. A must for any collection of books for children, or for the young at heart!

The classic poetry treasury in a fresh new edition includes poems by Robert Frost, Karla Kuskin, e.e. cummings, T.S. Eliot, W.B. Yeats, and Edward Lear. This rich and varied collection of poetry offers something for everyone, and is especially popular with younger children. The introduction includes advice on choosing poetry for children and reading it aloud. The poems are illustrated by Ellen Raskin.

I highly recommend this book for young readers.

Though I am now 32 years old and have 4 children of my own, I can still remember reading this book in Elementary school. My favorite poem at the time was "Eat it all Elaine," and I can still quote some of the verses! I'll be adding this book to my reminder list for sure so I can share the wonderful poems in this volume with my children.
