Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
These forty-five poems include selections from poets long gone but well remembered as well as contemporary voices such as Myra Cohn Livingston, Karla Kuskin, and William Jay Smith, the compiler. Each page contains a sweet, colored pencil illustration by Jane Dyer. Ranging from serious declarations of love to humorous verse like Prelutsky's "I Love You More Than Applesauce" and the classic rhyme "Old Woman, Old Woman," kids are sure to find something in this collection that will appeal. "Love Lyric" translated from the ancient Egyptian which was written thousands of years ago reads like a poem from a contemporary pen; it reinforces the message that love is universal and poems of love are timeless. Teachers will find the table of contents and index a real bonus.
Kirkus Reviews
Smith has gathered often humorous, always amorous poems from the traditional to the new, from contributors with household names to the poetically omnipresent Anonymous. Among the stellar items are selections by Langston Hughes ("I could take the Harlem night/and wrap around you,/Take the neon lights and make a crown"), Kenneth Koch ("One day the Nouns were clustered in the streets./An Adjective walked by, with her dark beauty"), Donald Hall ("Chipmunks jump, and/Greensnakes slither./Rather burst than/Not be with her"), and Robert Frost ("The rose is a rose,/And was always a rose,/But the theory now goes/That the apple's a rose,/And the pear is, and so's/The plum, I suppose"—playing on the old rhyme "If Apples Were Pears," which is also included). Cock Robin is here, as are such characters as the Old Woman and the Marmalade Man; Jack Prelutsky and William Shakespeare also make appearances, and so does the former poet laureate himself: "Now touch the air softly,/Swing gently the broom./I'll love you till windows/Are all of a room." Dyer contributes delicate, colored pencil drawings to the book, which is about the same size as a valentine. (index) (Poetry. 4-10) .
