    Gosh, I love poems for children just as much as the next guy. Too bad there aren’t any in this book. One Hundred Years of Poetry for Children is a serious and appealing collection of poems, including many by writers you’ll recognize like William Carlos Williams, Dylan Thomas and Shel Silverstein. More or less I couldn’t find anything in the book that I would think of reading to a 7-year-old. Too much sadness, adult emotions, death, war…you get the picture. A poem that a grandfather wouldn’t read to Gosh, I love poems for children just as much as the next guy. Too bad there aren’t any in this book.

A poem that a grandfather wouldn’t read to a first grader is not a children’s poem. If you’re a grownup, you might love the poems Harrison and Stuart-Clark have gathered.

    This is an anthology for the sort of child I was but not, perhaps, for children who aren't avid readers of poetry. On the other hand, it doesn't matter what adults think; a child will choose what appeals and leave the rest. When I was reading the 'Childhood' section I kept thinking "I'd have skipped these when I was a child". The last thing I had any interest in was children. It was my least favourite section but on the other hand - Fern Hill. Oh, the glory!

    This is an interesting collection of poems, which are sorted into genre which makes selecting a poem convenient. Due to the wide variety of poems in this collection, finding a poem for the purpose needed will be quiet easy.

The More It Snows by A.A Milne is one of the poems in the “Scenes” section of the book and is a particularly nice poem. It would be a great poem to use to explore rhythm in poetry and to emphasise the importance of repetition. It would be particularly useful to combine with music and percussion instruments to look at pace and rhythm. Tarantella by Hilaire Belloc is in the “Love” section of this collection. Belloc’s poetry is especially good for reading aloud to a class to develop children’s interest in poetry. He often tells a story and uses funny, yet cautionary tales in his poems. Again Belloc’s work would be great to look at pace and rhythm in poetry, but also to highlight story-telling in poems. This would be a very useful book to have in your library for reference when approaching poetry with a class, I would suggest that it would be most useful in a year 5/6 class.

For example Richard Edwards poem called The Word Party is the first poem in the book, it has a rhyme scheme of AA,BB,CC, DD with two lines of equal-ish length that rhyme. Edwards also uses a lot of imagery through personification of the "words attending the part. One of the biggest elements was repetition of "words" throughout the poem. It is used 18 times. This is just one example of the many poems.

    I love children's poetry anthologies that include more than just children's poetry, if you get my meaning. This collection is well curated and includes the likes of E E Cummings, Maja Angelou, and Walter de le Mare along with the requisite A A Milne and Shel Silverstein.

    This collection is divided into seven categories: Mystery, animals, childhood, people, scenes, war and love. Children’s favourites such as “The Word Party” by Richard Edwards are incorporated alongside poets more associated with poetry for adults such as Ted Hughes and Seamus Heaney.

There is a wide range of styles of poetry here, which could definitely be used to advance children’s creative writing and critical thinking. Poems such as “The shoes” by John Mole, which deals with the theme of an absent father, and “Truth” by Barry Wade, which deals with bullying, could be used to develop children’s emotional literacy and awareness. War poems such as “Anthem for Doomed Youth” by Wilfred Owen could be incorporated into history lessons to add a subjective human dimension. Poems relating to animals and the seasons can be used to enhance lessons about the natural world. While reading this book I found myself wishing there were more poems that related to the daily lives and concerns of children. Many of the poems are complex and contain fairly adult themes. Most of the poetry is only really suitable for children in year five or six so younger readers are not catered for overall. This book is an interesting compendium but I feel few more poems by noted children’s poets such as Allan Ahlberg, Judith Nicholls and Michael Rosen would enhance its suitability for younger readers.

    One Hundred Years of Poetry: For Children is a sampling of nearly 150 American and English poets, writing for children, in the 20th century. The poems are themed by mystery, animals, childhood, people, scenes, war, and love. This anthology of poems stimulates emotions. It covers a range from friendship to love poems.

Some of the poetry was quite advanced and complex, not really what I was expected in a book of poetry for children. Most of the poems are one page with a black and white illustration at the top. Some poems are intense and deep so I think the target audience would range from 6th-12th grade.

    This was a book of intense poems for children. Though it might be for middle school and high school of the now a day generation since some of the poems would be a bit hard for younger children to understand based on topic. The book starts with a excellent poem that describes a library. It is the best description of a library that I have encountered lately. Most of the poems made you think for sure.

    I was surprised reading this book at finding many different poems that I hadn't seen in other children's anthologies. However, much of the book seemed quite advanced and complex, not really what I was expecting in a book of poetry for children. While I am glad to have it as a resource, it would not be my first choice for young readers, though there are many wonderful poems in it.
