Not my thing but beautiful!
I will be honest from the start: I do not get poetry. I have nothing against it and I think people who love and appreciate it are awesome, I just have never understood it myself. I just can never find myself interested in reading poetry or enjoying it in any way, but I am trying to broaden my horizons and read things outside of my usual medium, so I figured children’s poetry was a good place to start.
This is an anthology collection of children’s poetry, mostly circling around nature and weather. A lot of these poems are very pretty and read nicely, but they’re nothing I would remember or carry in my head after reading. What I did love however, is the art by Richard Jones. This is a gorgeous book, and I had more fun looking through the art than anything else. All the pieces fit perfectly with the poems they are paired with, and it adds so much to the overall reading experience.
A really pretty book for any parent to get for their child or to give as a gift.
