"Spacious format; a wide variety of poems; and colorful, interpretive illustrations."--"School Library Journal. "The format is admirable: a handsome sampler of poems, with a short introductory essay, unfamiliar words briefly defined in footnotes, and a few prefatory sentences for each poem to establish context and aid interpretation.
