April is National Poetry Month and this book is a lovely way to celebrate.
Poetry for Young People is a book series from Sterling Publishing. The hardcover books are beautifully illustrated and intended for children ages 8 and up. It can definitely be enjoyed by adults, as well, but is a great introduction to poetry for children who are just beginning to understand how beautiful words can be.
Robert Frost knew how to turn everyday occurrences into thoughtful moments of beauty. The 25 poems that were selected for this book can make kids think and appreciate the things around them. The poems are just as Robert Frost wrote them.
There are brief introductions to each poem and also a biography of the poet to help us understand who he was and the context in which he artistically created his poetry.
