Combine the poetry of six of America s finest poets with specifically commissioned illustrations from its finest artists and you get a deluxe treasury of more than 150 classic works from the pen of Emily Dickinson, Robert Frost, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, Edgar Allan Poe, Carl Sandburg and Walt Whitman. As you and your child read each poem together, you ll both feel as if a magical world sometimes light and charming, sometimes dark and spooky has come to life through the remarkable harmony between word and image. And with a biography of each poet, commentary and definitions for the harder vocabulary, you ll be able to help youngsters appreciate the beauty of the verse s sound and rhythm and understand what is being said between the lines. Nothing is better for inspiring a lifetime love of poetry, of language and of reading.
