A Family of Poems
Inspired to create a poetry anthology for families after her national bestseller The Best Loved Poems of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, Caroline Kennedy set out to create a collection of her family's favorite poems. With more than one hundred poems, from five continents, illuminated with sumptuous watercolors by Jon J Muth, Ms. Kennedy organizes her selections into sections that reflect a child's world and frames each section with an introduction in her own words.
Her work in the New York City public schools has made Caroline Kennedy keenly aware of how great a role poetry can play in the minds and hearts of young readers. A Family of Poems offers children and families a single beautiful volume that will spark a love of language and verse that will last a lifetime.
