To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
This is one of the most beautiful books I've ordered for my kid. The poems are sweet and lovely and the illustration are beautiful, gentle, soft brush, realistic, adventurous yet so calm and serene. Both me and my 5 year old love it.
This is a collection of very nice, children's' nature poetry. The poems are short and easily read by 4th graders, and comprehended by as low as 5 - 6 year olds. The full color, full page illustrations are beautiful and well done and match the poems printed over them in most cases. While the book is obviously pro environmental, it is not sappy or snowflaky.
I searched Amazon for Tree Poems and *poof* Old Elm Speaks. I love this collection of poetry for all ages. Few things illustrate the life cycle like a tree and there are too many wonderful poems to mention one by one.
After you read a few pages, you open your eyes wider to the world around you - isn't that what poetry is for?
