From the Publisher
There''s a poem to celebrate every moment in life-whether it''s
hitting a home run, watching a sunset, or laughing with your best
friend. A poem is a gift of the heart that can inspire, reassure,
or challenge us. Memorize it-share it-it''s yours forever.
In this diverse collection, a companion to herNew York Times#1
best-sellerA Family of
Poems, Caroline Kennedy has chosen more than a hundred poems
that speak to all of us: the young and young at heart, readers new
to poetry and devoted fans. These poems explore deep emotions, as
well as ordinary experiences. They cover the range of human
experience and imagination. Divided into sections about nature,
sports, monsters and fairies, friendship and family, this book is
full of surprises. Each section is preceded by Caroline''s
thoughtful introduction reflecting her own family''s engagement
with and enjoyment of poetry.
Illustrated with striking watercolor paintings by award-winning
artist Jon J Muth, this is truly a book for all ages and interests,
and one that families will want to share for years to come.
