Found this jewel through SonLight curriculum. I've never cared for poetry, but I really enjoy this book. If I didn't have the book my kids would barely hear any. Some of the poems about landscapes were a bit hard to get through, but we looked forward to the next section. I imagine us enjoying these goodies even into highschool/college years.

We have just started using this lovely book. I enjoy the wide range of poems. They are conveniently divided into sections, making it easy to find a poem for many different occasions. I have used it quite a bit in conjuntion with nature study topics we have covered. I expect it to be something we will use and love for many years to come, without having to purchase another poetry book.
