This whimsically beautiful book of 20th century children's poetry contains both obscure gems as well as well-known favorites. Compiled by the United States Children's Poet Laureate, carefully selected poems focus in on classic themes (nature and dreaming) as well as more modern topics (remote controls). Throughout, Meilo So's watercolors brilliantly match both the subject and mood of the poetry sprinkled across the pages. Arranged loosely by subject, this collection of 211 poems is sure to become a favorite. 87 pages, hardcover with dust jacket.
