American children's poetry began with Native American cradle songs, moved on to a rhymed alphabet, blossomed in the 19th century with "A Visit from St. Nicholas," expanded widely in the 20th century, and continues with vigor into the new millennium. Some of the best of these poems, however, have been neglected or forgotten. This collection, edited by acclaimed children's author and poet Donald Hall, returns the forgotten treasures of American children's poetry. Featuring some of the best of children's book illustration-including archival selections from rare and early editions and pictures from now defunct 19th- and early-20th-century children's magazines-this anthology revives not only the classic poems but also the atmosphere of the periods in which they were written and read.Starting with anonymous Native American verses and a selection from the 1727 New England Primer, "Alphabet," this book spans two centuries of American children's poetry. Immediately recognizable names, including Emily Dickinson, Robert Frost, Carl Sandburg, and T. S. Eliot are joined by talented contemporary poets like Gwendolyn Brooks, Sandra Cisneros, Janet S. Wong, and others. Perennial favorites-such as "The Three Little Kittens" and "Casey at the Bat"-are mixed in with new classics, such as Shel Silverstein's "Sarah Cynthia Sylvia Stout Would Not Take the Garbage Out." Poems about holidays appear with verses for recitation, nursery rhymes, poems for laughter, bedtime verses, scary poems, and animal poems. In recognition of America's diverse nature, the selections in this anthology reflect a variety of backgrounds and experiences. From anonymous African-American poets we step forward through the ages to admire the talents of Langston Hughes, Sonia Sanchez, and Francisco X. Alarcón. Children will love discovering these gems, and both parents and teachers will delight in reading to children from this book.

The Oxford Illustrated Book of American Children's Poems is a beautiful book. The selections of poems are excellent. There is a great variety of poems from nursery rhymes to poems for older children. The editor chose poems with strong imagery to be easily envisioned by all readers, not only children. The illustrations are exquisite. They are watercolor pictures with muted colors, beautifully composed and interesting to readers young and old. I purchased this book from an Amazon vendor and it did not disappoint. This book allows children to be exposed to great literature and to share it with a cherished reader. As a professor of Children's Literature, I'm glad I purchased it. I look forward to using it in my class soon.

This beautiful book is a treasure to add to my library. I hope my grandchildren will read it often and learn to love poetry as I do.

Purchased this for a 5th grade student who loved writing poems. I wanted to inspire her to keep up the good work. She was pleased to receive it.

This is a wonderful collection of poetry for Children.
It has a good mixture of classic and modern poetry and of straight poetry as well as a few sillier or funnier pieces.
The poems also vary in length from a few lines to a couple of pages.
I have been reading this to my son since he was about two and a half and he enjoys it. It is a really nice introduction to poetry, language and imagery and has a wide enough choice that it isn't too serious or too silly.
Getaianne
Great Book. The book is organized into chronological order with when the poems were written. They are classic poems. Really like it.
Jack
Charming collection of poetry that we are using with the Sonlight homeschool curriculum History/Bible/Literature D+E. My 9 year old son who doesn't normally like to read aloud, will gladly read from this book.
Adokelv
Great assortment of classic childhood poetry! I will use it often
A good collection for children and teens. Some poems have a more mature content, so either are best read with a parent, or by older readers.
