A Very First Poetry Book

1 Review
These beautifully illustrated books present the best of what's new in poetry for children between the ages of 5 and 13. Many of the poems were written especially for these volumes, and among the poets included are Roald Dahl, Grace Nichols, Judith Viorst, Jack Prelutsky, and David McCord. Drawings, cartoons and photographs -- mostly in color -- draw attention to every page.
