Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "*Starred Review* Kennedy, who has edited several poetry books, waxes eloquently on the sturdy reasons for memorizing poetry: the empowerment and confidence it can bring. But she doesn't skimp on the sheer delight of the exercise itself. In this volume, Kennedy has collected more than 100 poems of all sizes for a wide-ranging audience, and she has divided them into chapters, which all begin with her own introductions. Included are poems about self, school, sports, games, and war, as well as nonsense poems. With thoughtfulness and occasional whimsy, Kennedy explains how and why particular poems were selected. And a fine collection it is one that will grab the audience. Gertrude Stein tells children, When I wish a dish / I wish a dish of ham. Henry Van Dyke asks them to consider the ramifications of time: New days, / New ways / Pass by! / Love stays. Many favorite established poets are here, but younger voices are represented, too. The breadth of the poetry is heightened by Muth's arresting watercolors, and with his pairings, he shows an acute sense of when the images should stay small and when they should blossom into full flower, such as the pink camellia that opens the chapter on nature. A wonderful resource to get kids reading, thinking, talking about, and yes, memorizing poetry.--Cooper, Ilene Copyright 2010 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Kennedy and Muth return with a stellar second poetry compilation, following 2005's A Family of Poems. Meant to be memorized, the more than 100 poems are divided into nine thematic sections-family, friendships, war, and nature, among others-and come from such writers as Emily Dickinson, Langston Hughes, Nikki Grimes, Linda Sue Park, and Gary Soto; biblical verses are included, and the Gettysburg Address appears in full. Muth's lush paintings demonstrate similar range: an abandoned red tricycle joins Ogden Nash's "The Parent" ("Children aren't happy with nothing to ignore,/ And that's what parents were created for"), and he stretches his comedic muscles in sections devoted to fantastical creatures and nonsense poems. Once readers have memorized the poems, Kennedy writes, "they won't even need this book." True, but with such a rich diversity of verse and stunning artwork, that would be a shame. All ages. (Mar.)
