The Four Princesses and Other Poems
The bedtime story of three fishermen out in their boat at night has been told through the poem "Wynken, Blynken, and Nod" for generations. Complemented by lovely illustrations of the fishermen and the night sky, it's presented in this volume along with more than a dozen other poems. Readers new to poetry can enjoy excerpts from Shakespeare, "The Gypsies" by Ben Johnson, and more to pique their interest in a different kind of writing. Exposure to rhyme, rhythm, and creative word choice reinforces parts of the language arts curriculum while encouraging imaginative thinking and writing.
