Praise for a varied and well-chosen collection
on 26 October 2000
The idea of a poem a day is a good one for introducing poetry to a child, since it provides an easily digestible segment, and you can dip in and out of the book from time to time. Many children's collections suffer from being to heartily amusing or condescending, but this book acheives a nice balance between the silly and the serious. A great deal of thought has obviously gone into choosing a mood for each day, without too many seasonal cliches. I was also pleased to find a number of classical favourites along with selections obviously written for children.
