Product Details


“Meticulously researched, Dear Mr. Longfellow uses letters written by actual children to their beloved poet to re-create, in rich and often-moving detail, the life of a writer who took his readers seriously, and none more so than the youngest of them. Living up to Longfellow’s model, Sydelle Pearl has written a book that I imagine will appeal to readers of all ages.”
– Christoph Irmscher, Author of Longfellow Redux

“This unique homage to Longfellow will be a welcome addition to any library. Pearl’s collecting of letters and connection of them to Longfellow’s life is fascinating. A wonderful, heartfelt read.”
– Lee Bennett Hopkins, Author of Been to Yesterdays: Poems of a Life

“Henry Wadsworth Longfellow’s poetry has long had a special appeal to children. This delightful book documents the special bond between the poet and his young readers during his lifetime and how that enthusiasm for his work continues to this day.”
– Earle G. Shettleworth Jr., Maine state historian

“A fresh and delightful way to learn about what Longfellow’s poems meant to his young readers.”
– Mayor Henrietta Davis, Cambridge, Massachusetts
