A Child’s Anthology of Poems

I was looking through my books a couple days ago, and I came upon this one. It is a large collection of famous poems by famous poets like Emily Dickinson and Lewis Carroll. One of my favorite poems, though, is by Robert Frost. It is called The Road Not Taken. It starts like this.

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;
 It is a splendiferously splendiferous poem.
The poem is about choosing between taking the known path that everyone uses, and the unknown path that would be an adventure. This is a great book. The stories are best for slightly younger kids, and the morals for the older. This book is very excellent, I would give it maybe 4.5/5 stars. There are co many children’s poetry collections to compare this book to, but I can’t think of a single one right now. Literally. My mind is blank. Usually, these types of poems are used to teach kids good habits and what not to do.
