Trusted Reviews & Ratings

The Book Snob Mom
Mom, Avid Reader, Austen Fangirl

I had the hardest time giving this book a number rating! I love that each poem is illustrated by a different fantastic illustration—it’s so fun to see each of the different styles as you flip through and how their illustrations impact the tone of the poems. I personally find that unpublished works of great authors from the past often aren’t their best work, so the fact that this is from a cache of unpublished Margaret Wise Brown poems makes me a little skeptical and it’s definitely not something you can sit down and read cover to cover with most kids. I’d suggest treating it as something where you read a poem or two in a quiet moment and then put it away for another time.
