Reviews - What do our customers think?
The poetry book I thought I would never find!  Sep 15, 2008
If, like me, you have been searching for a poetry book that will introduce kids to some of the truly great poets of history (take a look at the table of contents!) yet with a light touch -- this is your book. The selections are appealing and vividly illustrated, and nourish the natural appetite for adventure, nobility and beauty that all kids have, but which is too seldom encouraged.

I was relieved to see that this book maintains a consistent level of quality throughout: nowhere does it sandbag young readers with gross-out "humor" and mixed messages about the way they should feel about their parents, teachers and siblings. That, frankly, is as important to me as the fact that "The Barefool Book of Classic Poems" introduces kids to the work of Shakespeare, Milton, Yeats, Tennyson, Wordsworth, Edna St. Vincent Millay and many others.

All in all, a refreshing (and overdue) "find"!
Beautiful Art, Classic Poems  Nov 8, 2006
Are you looking to introduce classic poetry to a child? And, by classic I mean canonical--Shakespeare, Dickinson, Poe. Then look no further than "The Barefoot Book of Classic Poems."

"The Barefoot Book of Classic Poems," compiled and illustrated by Jackie Morris, and with an introduction by Carol Ann Duffy, is a beautiful new collection of poetic masterpieces.

The book opens with Emily Dickinson's "A Book" and E.V. Rieu's "The Paintbox," honoring the word and illustration. What follows is a wide variety of poems you know from Nash to Yeats, Carroll to Rilke, Millay to Shakespeare, Stevens to Browning.

Jackie Morris illustrates her selected poems with lush illustrations of animals, people, oceans, seas, ships, and many, many stars. My favorite illustration adorns a two-page spread with "She Walks in Beauty" (Byron) on the left page and "He Wishes for the Cloths of Heaven" (Yeats) on the right. On the left page a serious man holds the train of a woman's blue cloak, a cloak that continues all the way to the top of the right page where a woman stares out into the "cloths of heaven."

"The Barefoot Book of Classic Poems" is a perfect gift for the holidays or for a new baby. It's one of those rare books that can stand on a bookshelf from birth through high school graduation.
