This exuberant celebration of poetry is an essential book for every young one’s library and a gorgeous gift to be both shared and treasured. Sit back and savor a superb collection of more than sixty poems by a wide range of talented writers, from Margaret Wise Brown to Gertrude Stein, Langston Hughes to A. A. Milne. Greeting the morning, enjoying the adventures of the day, cuddling up to a cozy bedtime – these are poems that highlight the moments of a toddler’s world from dawn to dusk. Carefully gathered by Jane Yolen and Andrew Fusek Peters and delightfully illustrated by Polly Dunbar, Here’s a Little Poem offers a comprehensive introduction to some remarkable poets, even as it captures a very young child’s intense delight in the experiences and rituals of every new day. The striking illustrations in this anthology of poetry for children reinforce the themes of the poems and capture the imagination. The poems are divided into fours chapters: Me, Myself and I, Who Lives in My House? Go Outside, and Time for Bed. Many famous poets are featured including Spike Milligan, Michael Rosen, Hilaire Belloc and Roger McGough in poems that captivate the imagination through their use of rhythm and rhyme across a range of topics that are central to most children’s lives (family, beach, mud, bath, bed, ice cream, etc.).
