Ivy in Bloom: The Poetry of Spring from Great Poets and Writers from the Past by Vanita Oelschlager, Kristin Blackwood (Illustrator)

This is an illustrated children's poetry book. I recommend this book for children between 4 - 6, the first half of the book has simple small sentences that are easy for young children barely learning to read, while the second half has extended lines. The lines from the illustrated portion of the book are taken from famous poems, in the second half of the book, larger segments of the poem shown and then at the end there is a line about the author and when he or she lived.

I thought this was a nice book about the changing of the seasons, its engaging and captivating for young readers barely branching away from mom/dad reads to them to them reading to mom/dad.

This book is good, for its target audience it delivers; so if you've got a young one that's just getting the hang of reading, you might wanna go check this one out at the library.

Rating 4 out of 5
