Here are poems that can make you smile, tell you stories, or start you wondering. Open this book anywhere and begin reading. You'll soon find out why Knock at a Star is the perfect title. For a star, after all, gives off a different sort of light from the everyday, and poetry also can make you see things in a different light.
The poems in Knock at a Star were collected with you in mind. They are not for adults, and they're not for babies. They are for people like you, who love to hear poetry in your head and in your heart or are curious about the fun and joy a good poem can give you.
This is a new version of a book that many people have liked very much for more than fifteen years. It has seventy-five new poems in it, along with more than a hundred old favorites. The Kennedys, who collected them all, hope it will help everyone in the twenty-first century enjoy poetry just as much as they have in the twentieth. Take a look. Knock at a star.
