Highly recommended! A World Full of Poems/Selected by Sylvia M. Vardell

This gorgeously illustrated title provides a wonderful introduction to poetry for young children.  The adults who share or read these poems will also enjoy the experience.

The poems are organized by subjects including, for example, Family and Friends, Feelings, Animals and Nature, Cities, Towns and Travel, Fun and Games, Science and Art, Body and Health and A World of Learning.  The range is vast and appealing.

I enjoyed so many of these poems, for instance, I’m Bigger by Kristy Dempsey.  What older sibling won’t enjoy this paean to having skills that the new baby lacks while also acknowledging love for that tiny creature?

This book is inclusive.  For example, the section on family includes poems about everything from adoption to same sex families to the Korean tradition of a baby choosing an object that is tied to their future to a poem titled Abuelita.  Throughout this book, on all other subjects this book is equally inviting.

I highly recommend this title.  Many thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for this book in exchange for an honest review.
