Forget-Me-Nots: Poems to Learn by Heart, by Mary Ann Hoberman and Michael Emberley
When you learn a poem by heart, it becomes a part of you. You know it in your mind, in your mouth, in your ears, in your whole body. And best of all, you know it forever.
With personal introductions by former Children's Poet Laureate Mary Ann Hoberman - as well as her own time-tested tips and tools for memorization and recitation - and vivid illustrations by Michael Emberley featuring his trademark wit and lively characters, Forget-Me-Nots includes more than 120 works from both classic and contemporary poets, from childhood favourites to lesser-known treasures.
This anthology will inspire a love of learning poetry!
