" Easy to read text and visually stunning photographs, will guide children effortlessly into the world of poetry. " said.

" I didn't like every poem in the book, but that's ok. The pictures were amazing, but sometimes were better than the poetry. " said.

" This is, possibly, the best poetry book for children I have ever encountered. It does an wonderful job of presenting poems that are accessible to children without talking down to them. In fact, it contains numerous poems that you'll find in AP literature textbooks (I know, I'm an AP lit teacher) and a number of surprising and delightful selections that can be understood on multiple levels. I can't recommend it highly enough. " said.

" The most gorgeous poetry anthology I have ever discovered! A feast for the eyes paired with poems, many of which had satisfying rhythms as well as vivid imagery. I loved finding some by respected greats like Whitman, Frost, and Dickenson and a good variety of thought-provoking, descriptive, and just fun. I certainly didn't love every single poem, but enjoyed most as well as the careful thought put into organization. A great choice to read with the kids for Poetry Month! " said.

" The photography is spectacular, but the selection of poems a bit disappointing, and the numerous evolutionary references as well as an extensive explanation of Mother Nature and who she is (?) combined to make this book sub-par for me. Instead of giving glory to God as the Creator, "Mother Nature" is credited and worshipped. It always amazes me that in the face of God's incredible handiwork, people still refuse to see Him.The photos are the best part of this book. That's about it. " said.

" I don't think I've ever read an entire book of poetry before. I tackled this one for my 2016 reading challenge. I still don't think that poetry is my thing, but I did enjoy reading this book. Several of the poems really spoke to me. Most of all I loved the photographs in this book. I love almost anything that National Geographic puts out because of the gorgeous pictures, and this book did not disappoint. I will be sure to point out this book to my students this week. " said.

"I am on my second complete reading of the book. So many of the poems I read two and three times each time I come across them. J. Patrick Lewis has chosen such a wonderful group of poems and authors. The pictures are spectacular as only NG can do; the poems are even more stellar. This is a wonderful read-a-loud or read-it-silently book for readers of all ages. Classification of poems according to type make this the perfect textbook for reading and writing poetry. I love reacquainting with my old poet friends and making new poet friends all in one book. " said.

"National Poetry Month would not be the same without a book of poems by J. Patrick Lewis, former U. S. Children’s Poet Laureate, but since that is the next review, today will feature a large volume of nature poetry compiled and edited by the esteemed Mr. Lewis. National Geographic Kids brings a new edition of their nature poetry, which began with Nat. Geo. Book of Animal Poetry.

Divided into ten chapters and 200 poems, Book of Nature Poetry has a poem for everyone. The book begins with Peggy Gifford’s The Thing Is the Thing Is Green.
