I love this book I am that girl you knew in school the one who loved to read and never minded the poetry sections of literature class So admittedly I am a tad biased Caroline Kennedy edited this book in the same fashion as She Walks in Beauty her last collection of poetry That means that the poems are grouped by subject sports war school etc My only complaint with She Walks in Beauty was the lack of The Lady of Shalott and Shall I Compare Thee to a Summers DayThat is not an issue with this bookThe selections are outstanding Frost Dickinson Hughes Shakespeare Kipling Silverstein Stevenson all present The Gettysburg Address Micah 68 Casey at the Bat and St Paul's gorgeous First Corinthians and have not love I am nothing are all accounted for as well The section labeled Extra Credit is where you will find Chaucer Kubla Khan and Paul Revere's Ride Highly highly recommended for all ages

Ous original watercolor paintings by award winning artist Jon J Muth this is truly a book for all ages and one that families will share again and again Caroline's thoughtful introductions shed light on the many ways we can appreciate poetry and the special tradition of memorizing and reciting poetry that she celebrates within her own famil.

Poems to Learn by HeartSo closely as to be learned by heart In issuing the challenge to memorize great poetry Caroline Kennedy invites us to a deeply enriching experience For as she reminds us If we learn poems by heart not only do we have their wisdom to draw on we also gain confidence knowledge and understanding that no one can take away Illustrated with gorge. A lot of people have raved about this collection of poetry so I may be the lone voice who doesn't totally agree Don't get me wrong I really don't have anything against the poems Many of the poems in this collection are familiar to me and many of them are fabulous I especially liked Voices Rising The illustrations are beautiful as well So what is the problem I just don't find it very kid friendly I have a copy I will put it in my library But who will check it out Poetry doesn't get checked out by students much Occasionally Shel Silverstein and Jack Prelutsky will get checked out but unless it's April Poetry Month and they are reuired to my poetry books don't circulate Teachers check poetry books out I love poetry I really do but in order to get kids really interested it needs to be uniue and different I just don't think the book will have a lot of kid appeal
