Press reviews

Poems for children should be strong on visual appeal too. Children’s poetry is generally illustrated, especially that for younger children, which greatly increases the sensuous impact of the poetry book on the reader. Pictures by Masumi Farukawa, Cathy Shimmen and Kristina Swamer add to the enchantment of three collections of children’s poetry from Usborne: Poems for Little Children, Poems for Young Children and The Usborne Book of Poetry.
