School Library Journal Review

Gr 2 Up The illustrations in this book are exquisitefinely detailed flowers, each with an equally charming border, but few children will read or be able to comprehend the accompanying poems. Except for the few Haiku poems, the majority of the 24 poems are too advanced for children (Tennyson, Wordsworth, Goethe, et. al.). Williams uses watercolor and gouache in fine, delicate strokes to beautiful effect, page after page. The book stands on its own merit as an artistic display and shouldn't be overlooked, but as a poetry collection for children, it fails. Barbara S.
