Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
Gr 3-6 This slim and elegant book will be cherished by any child who loves poetry. Forty-two poems which reflect the feelings and actions of Livingston's own childhoodand are just as applicable to children todayare set down on rich paper and highlighted by Arnold's small, delicate black-and-white drawings. The poems vividly evoke toboggan rides, mosquitos, strange and wonderful relatives, miracles observed and long remembered disappointments. Because the images are so clear, librarians and teachers may want to highlight the natural connections between these poems and books: ``Nanny'' would be lovely to share with Cooney's Miss Rumphius (Viking, 1982), and ``Grandfather Clock'' could be the clock in Pearce's Tom's Midnight Garden (Lippincott, 1984). The choice of the title is particularly apt, as it comes from a poem which clearly expresses the quality of this book; Livingston ``gives words/ to worlds I know.
