Read full description of the books:
Re-reading this book always takes me back to my childhood. I can still remember the day I bought this from the bookstore with my saved-up allowance. This was one of the first books, along with those of Shel Silverstein, that sparked an interest in poetry for me. Looking back now and reading it as an adult, it is easy to see why.
Piping Down the Valleys Wild is the perfect book for young readers beginning to read poetry. There are sixteen chapters in this, based roughly off themes such as weather, animals, and holidays, and each chapter contains a number of poems pertaining to those themes. The poems included here are from a range of authors, including lesser known poets as well as more famous ones such as Robert Frost and Emily Dickinson. I can't say I've ever used this word to describe a book before, but this was truly a whimsical collection of poetry. The poems are a lot of fun and easy to read out loud, perfect for beginning poets. It took me a while to read through this book, not because it wasn't good or because it was difficult to get through by any means, but mostly because I just enjoyed immersing myself in it for a little while each day. Most of the poems here are somewhat silly and rhyme-y, but there are also poems that are more introspective and quiet, although I will say that none of the poems included are all that deep or difficult to understand the meaning of.
This is somewhat of a short review for me, but I will say that if you are looking for a book to encourage young readers towards poetry, this is your book. Fans of Shel Silverstein will also want to check this book out.
