A Child's Introduction to Poetry is a wide-ranging journey through the history and highlights of the world's poetry, from epics and odes to nonsense verse and haikus, and is filled with examples of every style. The multimedia package encourages children to listen, read, and learn - and opens the door to a lifetime of appreciation of a rich literary tradition. This book painlessly introduces kids (and parents, too) to the greatest poets in history, from Homer and Shakespeare to Robert Frost and Ogden Nash - and provides excellent examples of their work and commentary on what makes it so special. In short, this is a galloping tour through poetic history loaded with all of our most significant and beloved poems. In addition to charming illustrations on every lively page, A Child's Introduction to Poetry contains a full-length CD with wonderful renditions of the poems read by professional actors.
