Great Addition!  Oct 3, 2007
This book is full of beautiful pictures with fun and educational poems. Your child will love this. It is slightly geared toward girls but perfect addition to any library.
A must-have for any parent's library  Sep 24, 2007
I grew up with these poems; it's the first book I ever read by myself. The poems are truly beautiful and catchy. Sometimes I'll find myself mumbling the bathtime poems as I turn the shower on or the woolly blanket poem when curled up on the couch. I was ecstatic when I saw that they had re-released this book. My family's original copy was so well-read the pages were falling out. However, when we compared the books side to side we discovered that there were quite a few poems missing from the new edition! Fuzzy Wuzzy, New Shoes, and quite a few others were absent. I'm not sure whether they couldn't get the rights to them, or if they thought that the book would be too large because it's a hardboard, but it was truly a disappointment. I'm still glad for the copy and I look forward to sharing the poems with my future children, but I'll always have a nagging feeling, knowing that there's many wonderful poems omitted. Regardless, the book is beautifully illustrated and the poems are quite pleasing. A definite must-have for any parent or parent-to-be.
A charming book of poems for children  Feb 28, 2006
I initially picked up this book in a bookstore because of the beautiful illustrations. I have since bought several as presents for friends and family. It is an anthology of poems, so some of the poems are better than others, but on the whole the selection is very nice.

My son, who is now 2 and a half years old, knows 3 or 4 of these poems by heart and loves to hear his favorites when a related subject comes up during the day. For example, Robert Louis Stevenson's "The Swing" when we are at the park. This book is a lovely way to introduce appreciation for rhyming, rythmic language and general literary beauty.

Wonderful book!  Feb 17, 2006
I loved Poems to Read to the Very Young when I was a child, and it is just as good now! I'm reading it with my 10 month old son, and we love it. I do want to point out that many of the poems and drawings in the original book are not in this board book version. I plan to get the original when my son is old enough not to chew on it.
Lovely collection  Dec 27, 2005
Very nice selection of poems, including Christina Rosetti and Robert Louis Stevenson. The illustrations are pretty, but like others by Wilkin they are subdued, not likely to jump out and grab the attention. That's not necessarily a negative, though. My two preschoolers enjoy hearing the poems and also enjoy the pictures.
