 A fine anthology of poems that caters equally to the tastes of young children and older ones. The approximately 250 poems are arranged in alphabetical order by author and are successfully balanced among different genres. There are examples of traditional children's poetry, contemporary works, didactic moral poems, philosophical poetry, narrative pieces (including ``Casey at the Bat''), animal poems, and even poems about poetry. Among those poets with four or more selections: William Blake, Lewis Carroll, Emily Dickinson, Rachel Field, Robert Frost, Henry W. Longfellow, Theodore Roethke, Christina Rossetti, William Carlos Williams, William Wordsworth, and William B. Yeats. (b&w illustrations, not seen) (Poetry. 7+)
