Sometimes you read a book review that not only makes you want to go out and get the book, it also just makes you want to cheer because you’ve found another kindred soul, in this case the book is The Barefoot Book of Classic Poems, the reviewer Becky at Farm School.
The review opened with one of my mom’s favorite quotations and then launched into a delightful reflection on poetry, children’s literature and classics. And to top it off she ended by quote from Faulkner’s Noble Prize speech.
The book is going on my wishlist. And now I’m going to go browse the farm school archives. Looks like some good stuff…
Big thanks to Melissa Wiley of the Bonny Glen for the link.
I know, I know, the above link is actually to the author’s further reflections and not to the original review, which can be found here; but really, this entry stands alone as a recommendation for both the book and the reviewer.
