A Family of Poems: My Favorite Poetry for Children

by Caroline Kennedy

Illustrated by John J. Muth

Hyperion 2005

Ages: All ages

Topic: Poems and Rhymes

This collection of more than 100 poems selected so thoughtfully by Caroline Kennedy and framed into sections (About me, That's So Silly, The Seashore, Adventure, Animals, The Seasons and Bedtime) is a family treasure you must own.

The majestic watercolor paintings by Jon Muth add much richness to each page and magic to the poems. This is a book you'll continue to give and one you must have in your own library. It is a gift for children as well as grownups.
