    One thought on “The Golden Treasury of Poetry”

    1. When my children were at home, we read the poems in this book so much that the book is now falling apart. Not only is this a wonderful selection of poetry, but it is illustrated beautifully. Today, as I prepare a presentation for an Alzheimer's unit, I again delighted in its poetry, and choose several selections, thinking that perhaps the patients had memorized some of these poems years ago, and that hearing them again would revive memories. (One can buy the book for $179.00 on .)

    2. I grew up with this poetry book. My dad and mom would read the poems to me when I was little or I would pour over the pictures. This is one of the only books in my literary history that comes from by dad's side of the family. When my dad was little, his mom read the poems to him. My favorites (sentimentally) are "The Raggedy Man," "Custard the Cowardly Dragon," and "Father William."

    3. One of the few books that has always travelled with me through countless moves in various countries. Mine is inscribed at the front:"To Karen From Aunt Dorothy and Uncle Hugh. Christmas 1961." Aaaaaw.

    4. Recommended to me by Stephen/GoodReads, 12/7/14. Currently and for over two years now, I have not been able to reach my shelves from the box I used to use. I simply cannot make it work for me despite much trying.

    5. This edition is a reprinting of an earlier version that I received for Christmas from my mother when I was nine years old. I loved the illustrations that accompanied the poems, and I can honestly say that my love for poetry stemmed from receiving this book. It is truly a "treasure."

    6. Awards the book has received (if any): noneAppropriate grade level(s):k-2Original 3-line summary: this books is a collection of poems for children to read and share with their friends.

However, I do think that giving children a lot of opt [...]

This is a fun poem. It reminds me of playing in my backyard and pretending it was a far off world. I'd recommend this for an in class read.5. This poem is great for vocabulary.

    9. Definitely an oldie but a goodie that one will treasure for years to come. Within this book there is a collection of such great names such as T.S. Eliot, Emily Dickinson, John Keats, Carl Sanburg and so many more that it would forever just to name a third of them. And you will find yourself reading over the poems and crying to yourself if you were raised with poetry, "I remember that one!"The compiler did a great job of combing similar poetry together while writing a small introduction to the ca [...]

    10. I decided to read this book because, in all honesty, it was the first poetry book i could find in my house.This completes the category 'A book of poetry'.I enjoyed this category because I do not usually read poems and it was different and exciting to try.My favourite quote from the three poems I read was:1. The Baliff's Daughter of Islington: "For now I have found my own true love, Whom I thought I should never see more."2. Old Mother Hubbard: "This wonderful dog Was Dame Hubbard's delight."3. T [...]

    11. As an anthology of poetry for children reading-aloud-to age who might move on to enjoying it alone this can be compared favorably to an earlier anthology, All The Silver Pennies on which I was weaned. This is much bigger, broader in scope. It has a greater number of humorous poems, more ballads and anonymous vernacular poems and songs. It holds many more action-oriented narrative poems than Silver Pennies, which has a more feminine sensibility. It also is organized more thematically than Silver [...]

This anthology has poems for everyone at every age. From classic poems from T.S. Elliot to silly and funny poems, this book demonstrates the wide variability of poetry for students to lea [...]

    13. My grandmother gave me this book when I was 8 years old, and I've loved it and poured over it many, many times as I grew from childhood into a mother with an 8-year-old daughter of my own. I've pressed flowers into this book from long lost and forgotten loves, used the illustrations to learn how to draw, learned the poems and forgotten them and learned them again. There are poems here that have resonated with every stage of my life in one way or the other - this book has been a friend and compan [...]

    14. My daddy read me poetry as a child. This one was in my elementary school library and I checked it out over and over. Many of favorites are in there (as were Dad's). I got a chance to buy this for home a couple of years ago and would not be without it.My Dad passed away in 2010 and I still read poetry and think of him.Also -- the illustrations are good enough to engage children in the text. And many levels of readers would get something out of the wide range of peoms to be found here.

    15. My parents purchased this book for me when I was about eleven-years-old. They had noticed that I kept checking it out of the library repeatedly. Now my daughter is enchanted by the illustrations and with the poems. Purchased a copy for her on eBay. Charming illustrations and poetry.

    16. I'm teaching a poetry class so I've been reading through lots of poem books. This is the latest one. I am always interested in finding different versions of the same poems. And finding more verses. I have enjoyed reading some of these poems out loud to my poetry group.

    17. I have had this book since I was a child, and I have to admit that I love just having it on my shelf. Wonderful poems, wonderful illustrations. I don't know that I have ever read it cover to cover, but I know I have read many of these poems many times. A cherished, old friend of a book.

    18. My grandparents brought me this for my 10th birthday because my mum told them I kept getting it out of the library. That was 45 years ago and I still have the book and look at it regularly. I love the poems and the pictures that go with them.

    19. Wonderful, beautifully illustrated compilation of classical poetry presented in a way that's accessible to children and poetry neophytes. Love this book.

    20. I preferred the abridged version as a child, and blame Untermeyer for branding the minor poems of major poets on my brain. But it's still lovely.
