This is a beautiful book. It was given to my daughter as a present as we were moving to another place. So, the poem 'someone I like' about an important person being far away is poignant. All poems in this book are emotive. They have moved my daughter so she wont forget her friend nor the poems she gave to her. For me, they more than bring a tear to my eye. Overall, poems in the book address love and friendship and in such a poetic way, we return to them almost nightly. Issues of life and death are also addressed and in a way that helps children understand difficult life events. Now at age 6 my child selects the poems she would like to read from the book when reading by herself. She never reads from beginning to end but jumps around pages getting the experience she would like! Another enjoyable thing about this book is poems are from different cultures so, although all are in English, they vary in style.

I love Giovanni Manna's illustrations so for me this book is fantastic. The choice of poems is good too - thoughtful and simple.
