Children Ages 4-8 • 15 min. • Unabridged • © 1996

Scribblings on paper burst into life with the music of the human voice--poetry! Giovanni's whimsical collection of poetry for young children sings under Staunton's slow and lilting reading. She pays careful attention to the details of pacing, intonation and inflection, where so much of the meaning of poetry lies when it's read aloud. Children will relish the opportunity to lie back and create images of frogs courting, quilts airing on the line, snowflakes waltzing and bees flirting. Listeners will easily memorize the poems heard here. Poetry-loving families will enjoy this recording as much as teachers. T.B. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 98]
