The New Oxford Treasury of Children's Poems Reviews


"Excellent poems illustrated in full color. Pieces by well-known poets of the past (Auden, Belloc, Blake, Farjeon, Lear, Tennyson, Yeats) appear alongside works of contemporary poets, contributing to the freewheeling style of the collection.... Eleven artists contributed illustrations that interpret
the poetry with wit, verve, and delicacy, according to the tone of the writing.... A dependable treasury for locating old favorites or finding new ones."--Booklist
"In a superbly edited anthology, more than 130 spirited, mostly British poems, classics as well as those less familiar, pair off with color and black and white art."--Publishers Weekly
"This wide-ranging collection includes Lear's 'The Jumblies, ' a Barundi lullaby, John Masefield's 'Sea Fever, ' a poem from the Navajo, 'The Echoing Green' by William Blake, and numerous humorous, anonymous ditties."--The Horn Book Guide
"The anthology format raised to new heights: this collection of verse, by bards as various as Yeats and Nikki Giovanni, should hold pride of place on any youngster's bookshelf."--Smithsonian
"A lively and varied selection which offers plenty of poems to disappear into."--Carousel
