Poetry List

  • Big Talk: Poems for Four Voices
    by Paul Fleischman (Author), Beppe Giacobbe (Illustrator)
    ISBN: 0763638056
    These rousing, rib-tickling poems demand the joy of reading aloud. Settle back and chant "The Quiet Evenings Here," as Grandma rocks, the clock tick-tocks, and no one cares a hoot for the world outside. Delight in "Seventh-Grade Soap Opera," alive with hearsay about who’s holding hands with whom. This innovative book weaves a tapestry of rhythm that will have readers of all ages sounding off.
  • Carl Sandburg: Poetry for Young People
    by Frances Schoonmaker Bolin (Editor), Steven Arcella (Illustrator)
    ISBN: 140275471X
  • Edward Lear: Poetry for Young People
    by Edward Mendelson (Editor), Laura Huliska-Beith (Illustrator)
    ISBN: 0806930772
    Utterly delightful to read aloud, and for parent and child to share, Edward Lear's humorous verses shine with irrepressible joy and rhythm. Filled with exuberantly nonsensical made-up words (like "Scroobius Pip" and "pobble"!) that tickle the funny bone, his work gives free rein to youthful imaginations. What better to foster a love of poetry than the immediately appealing The Owl and the Pussy-Cat, with its effortless rhymes, songlike beat, and charming animal characters? Or The Quangle Wangle's Hat, which tells the tale of a creature who warmly welcomes everyone--and so makes everyone cheerful. In Dingle Bank, even some young and mischievous boys punished by their schoolmaster make the best of their situation and succeed in having a good time. Bright and fanciful paintings--all as wildly energetic and unrestrained as the language itself--add to the enjoyment. 20 examples of Lear's finest poems will entice children over and over again--and, as always, this acclaimed series features fascinating biographical information, introductions to each verse, and full annotations that define difficult vocabulary.
  • Emily Dickinson: Poetry for Young People
    by Frances Schoonmaker Bolin (Editor), Chi Chung (Illustrator)
    ISBN: 1402754736
  • Lewis Carroll: Poetry for Young People
    by Edward Mendelson (Editor), Eric Copeland (Illustrator)
    ISBN: 1402754744
  • Rhymes for Annie Rose
    by Shirley Hughes
    ISBN: 0763629405
    Coloring pictures together, creating a playhouse under the table - Annie Rose spends a lot of time with her big brother, Alfie. Whether the two of them are depicted splashing in the rain or following footprints in the snow, sailing a toy boat or watching clothes dance around in the dryer, Shirley Hughes's quiet rhymes and slice-of-life images offer snippets of the familiar moments that make up a preschooler's world - and an endearing ode to sibling and family bonds.
  • Rudyard Kipling: Poetry for Young People
    by Eileen Gillooly (Editor), Jim Sharpe (Illustrator)
    ISBN: 0806944846
    An illustrated collection of twenty-eight notable poems by Rudyard Kipling, with commentary and definitions of unfamiliar words. Includes an introduction about the poet's life and work.
  • This Place I Know: Poems of Comfort
    by Georgia Heard (Compiler)
    ISBN: 0763619248
    Eighteen outstanding artists contribute to a work of love. In September 2001, New York poetry anthologist Georgia Heard was asked to compile a collection of "poems of comfort" for schoolchildren in lower Manhattan. Soon afterward, Candlewick Press editors learned of the project and, believing that people everywhere could benefit from such a collection, approached a number of well-known artists to ask if they would be interested in participating. Within weeks, no fewer than eighteen artists had agreed to volunteer their talents to illustrate one poem each. The result is this unprecedented volume of life-affirming verse that is as richly diverse as it is powerful, as beautiful as it is full of heart.

    From Emily Dickinson’s "Hope is the thing with feathers" to Langston Hughes’s "Hold on to dreams," from Walt Whitman to Georgia Heard herself, here is an outstanding selection of poets and poems, matched by a stellar array of artists whose collective work on these pages is truly spectacular. To comfort children and adults everywhere, eighteen top picture book artists have each illustrated a poem for this magnificent keepsake volume.
  • Under the Moon & over the Sea: A Collection of Caribbean Poems
    by John Agard (Editor), Grace Nichols (Editor), Christopher Corr (Illustrator), Cathie Felstead (Illustrator)
    ISBN: 0763618616
    A collection of poems about the wind, the sea, the people, and the animals of the Caribbean.
  • William Blake: Poetry for Young People
    by John Maynard (Editor), Alessandra Cimatoribus (Illustrator)
    ISBN: 0806936479
    The star of this superb new entry in the series is 18th century artist and poet William Blake, who wrote his mystical, spirit-filled verses for children and adults alike. Best known for his masterpieces “Songs of Innocence” and “Songs of Experience”—both excerpted here—he speaks of love, hate, anguish, relief and above all, mercy and the divine image that comforts us. Blake often uses simple, lovely language that young readers can appreciate, as well as animal metaphors; his poems sometimes even come in pairs, with the same subjects seen from different points of view. Professor John Maynard (Poetry for Young People: Alfred Lord Tennyson) provides the excellent biography and notes. Artist Alessandra Cimatoribus contributes richly colored and magically rendered paintings that fully capture the gentleness of “The Lamb,” the sparkling deep blue sky and angels of “Night,” and “The Tyger,” eyes glistening and sharp teeth bared—burning bright.
