We Love Poetry – 20th Century Children’s Poetry Treasury


The 20th Century Children’s Poetry TreasuryTitle:
  20th Century Children’s Poetry Treasury

Edited by: Jack Prelutsky

Illustrated by: Meilo So

A collection of more than 200 poems by such modern poets as Nikki Grimes, John Ciardi, Karla Kuskin, Ted Hughes, e.e. cummings, Eve Merriam, Deborah Chandra, Arnold Adoff, and more than 100 others.

“Prelutsky combed more than 4000 poetry volumes to select 211 poems by 137 poets. His sampling includes established poets like Langston Hughes, Shel Silverstein and e.e. cummings, but, to Prelutsky’s credit, not necessarily their best-known works. The overriding mood is rollickingly upbeat, uncharacteristic for a form renowned for its adeptness at expressing moments of grief or loneliness. Its unvarying tone notwithstanding, this eye-catching collection is likely to lure both future fans of verse and poetry devotees.”

We Love Poetry – Poisoned Apples

poisoned applesTitle:  Poisoned Apples

Author:  Christine Hepperman

“Christine Heppermann’s powerful collection of free verse poems explore how girls are taught to think about themselves, their bodies, their friends–as consumers, as objects, as competitors.

Based on classic fairy tale characters and fairy tale tropes, the poems range from contemporary retellings to first person accounts set within the original stories. From Snow White’s cottage and Rapunzel’s tower to health class and the prom, these poems are a moving depiction of young women, society, and our expectations.

Poisoned Apples is a dark, clever, witty, beautiful, and important book for teenage girls, their sisters, their mothers, and their best friends.”
