Poetry for Young People: Robert Louis Stevensonby Frances Schoonmaker, Lucy Corvino, Marlen Kastan, Glenn Harrington
"A collection of 32 poems...A short introductory biography...gives an insightful glimpse into his life and how it influenced his poems....illustrations convey the poetic notion of a romantic childhood memory, with pink-cheeked children...Muted colors, rich with warm golden accents among the dominant green tone, are a peaceful accompaniment to the poems."--School Library Journal. "These poems...are colorfully illustrated and notable for their detailed brushstrokes of gentle colors. They interpret the verse in a style that is fanciful without looking too juvenile for a middle-grade audience. Younger children will find the poems and illustrations to their liking as well."--Booklist.

This book was exactly what my 5th grader needed. His teacher wants him to be able to recite a poem by RLS. Instead of downloading one off the internet, I bought this book to encourage him to read more than the one poem minimum. The book was exactly what we needed - RLS's poems geared to kids with illustrations that appealed to their minds eye.
