This poetry book is full of miscellaneous poems about war, peace, hope, and dreams. It tells of many aspects of a war through poetry. There are poems in regards to letter to home, hoping for a brighter day, the sounds or war, and what happens during and after a war. I loved this book because of how it explained war aspects beautifully through poetry. ( )

Music and Drum: Voices of War and Peace, Hope and Dreams is beautifully illustrated. The images on each page fit perfectly behind the message of the poems. This collection of poems that reveal the pain of violence/war and the hope/joy children find in times of peace. ( )

I loved reading all of these poems. These are poems written by war survivors like children and soldiers and even some poetry by famous authors like Langston Hughes. ( )

Book description
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0399220240, Hardcover)

Children who have experienced war can be preternaturally eloquent, and often are in Laura Robb's collection. Even the bluntest of responses to violence can have a touch of poetry to them. In Music and Drum, however, the editor has also collected the reactions of adults, many of them fine poets, including Langston Hughes and Carl Sandburg. The theme is all of a piece, but the balance occasionally goes awry--with grown-up eloquence sometimes besting a child's simplicity. (Age 8 and older)

(retrieved from Amazon Thu, 12 Mar 2015 18:10:59 -0400)

A collection of more than two dozen poems written by Carl Sandburg, Lucille Clifton, Eve Merriam, and others which explores aspects of war and peace.
