100 Great Poems for Girls

Reading poetry for the first time is always a thrilling discovery. Whether you choose to memorize, read, or recite it aloud, each poem in this collection will offer something new - a spark of imagination, a unique rhyme, a vivid description, or simply a reason to laugh. Perfect for girls of all ages, this book celebrates poems about:

  • Nature with such beautiful works from William Wordsworth, Ralph Waldo Emerson, and Robert Frost
  • Imagination composed of works by Shakespeare, Yeats and Lord Tennyson
  • Inspiration crafted by Emily Dickinson, Emily Bronte, and William Blake
  • Fun and Nonsense literary verses by Shel Silverstein and Lewis Carroll

Since my youngest daughter is experiencing the love of poetry and prose, we thought this would be a wonderful book to begin her journey with and we were not disappointed. To see such love for the written words of great masters of weaving words through their writing, she was enchanted from the first page.

There are simple fun tongue twisters, limericks and even classic nursery rhymes to spin more fun into your child's literary world. Now they are all captured in one simple book dedicated to poems that girls will come to love and adore. Here's just a small sample:

A flea and a fly flew up a flue.
Said the flea, "Let us fly!"
Said the fly, "Let us flee!"
So they flew through a flaw in the flue.

I received this charming and delightful book, 100 Great Poems for Girls by Celia Johnson compliments of Hachette Book Group and Grand Central Publishing for my honest review and can honesty say, was not disappointed. To see reading encouraged in my daughter is a wonderful gift and with confidence I can say this book rates 5 stars any day! This are suitable for ages 9-12 years of age or older.
