Poetry for Young People: Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, Frances Schoonmaker, Chad Wallace
Children instinctively love poetry, with its appealing mixture of rhythm and rhyme. And Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, with his suspenseful narrative verse, deceptively simple structure, and powerful images of 19th-century United States, makes an especially suitable subject for the critically acclaimed Poetry for Young People series. Brilliant, specially commissioned artwork brings to life all the atmosphere, drama, and emotion of his writing including: the vital energy of "The Village Blacksmith," the urgency of "Paul Revere's Ride," and the sorrow of "The Wreck of the Hesperus." This handsome volume of Longfellow poems is now available in paperback – at a great price and with a bold new cover design – to bring the love of classic poetry to a broad new audience.

Academic editor Frances Schoonmaker is a professor in the Department of Curriculum and Teaching at Teacher’s College, Columbia University. She has taught and lectured in China, Japan, Mexico, England, and India, and served as the head of the teacher education initiative for the Teachers College/UNICEF Afghanistan Project.

Illustrator Chad Wallace creates detailed paintings with a focus on wildlife, people, and landscapes. He lives in Amawalk, NY.
