Product Details


Favorite Poems Old and New is a book of family poems. Those of us of an older generation will remember reading many of them around a fire on a winter’s evening or perhaps in summertime resting under a tree and having someone read them aloud to us. I hope that young people will keep this book available for frequent ‘dipping.’ Children are poets before they grow up and they should live with poems. I hope this book will encourage them to do so.”—Eleanor Roosevelt

“If your children think they don’t like poetry, expose them to this collection . . . and I defy them to resist its magic.”—Kirkus

“A fine book for parents to read aloud to their children.”—Library Journal

“This volume stands out for the comprehensiveness of its selection.”—The Horn Book
