by Caroline Kennedy
Paintings by Jon J Muth
Hyperion Books for Children, 2005
A collection of classic and new poems, short and long, descriptions of moments and lifetimes. Caroline Kennedy’s selection of poems is showcased with beautiful paintings rendered by Jon J Muth. A delight to the ears and eyes.
This collection contains 156 poems of adventure, animals, seasons, sillyiness and more. Caroline Kennedy’s premise is, “If our parents read to us as children, we remember the closeness of the moments together, the sound and power of voice and expression, the sense of wonder that a poem inspires.” This collection is perfect for any family bookshelf.
