A great book with different poems from different authors but all having to do with winter. A great book for children to learn the importance of winter and why we have the season. ( )

The editor's note alone is worth a star. Rogasky chose poems that *almost* make me look forward to winter. Keeping this for (hypothetical) grandchildren, because my son like's Hyman's art almost as much as I do. ( )

Great little selection of 25 poems about winter. I often read a few poems to my young son as his "bedtime book". He loves winter and while many books have poems of the season including a few for winter, just poems about winter is often just what he wants.
The illustrations are lovely and evidently based on real life scenes. ( )

Winter Poems would be a good book to introduce students to poetry. On top of that, as a teacher, you could do this during the winter and do activities along with it. ( )
