Description
Presented by National Book Award winner and former Children's Poet Laureate Mary Ann Hoberman, with anthropologist Linda Winston, The Tree That Time Built is a moving anthology of more than 100 poems about the natural world. These works by such poets as Dylan Thomas, Carl Sandburg, Constance Levy, Ruth Padel, Jack Prelutsky, and Hoberman herself range from the birth of the universe to the age of the dinosaurs to our own appearance on earth, inspiring readers of all ages to explore our prehistoric past, think like a tree, and marvel at the ability of flight. The book includes an audio CD of many of the poets reading their own work.

"Finding connections to and inspiration from Charles Darwin's work, the editors of this anthology encourage readers to consider the shared ancestry among all living things. Divided into nine sections, this impressive collection begins with the theme 'Oh, Fields of Wonder' and ends with poems that remind readers to 'Hurt No Living Thing.' Classic works by Walt Whitman, Emily Dickinson, Christina Rossetti, and the like, and selections from contemporary poets are included, as well as translated works. Hoberman and Winston cleverly pair titles such as D.H. Lawrence's 'Hummingbird' with Rachel Field's 'Something Told the Wild Geese.' A thoughtful introduction describes the origin and organization of the book. Many pages contain footnotes that provide additional information about the poet, poetic terms and form, and suggestions for further consideration and discussion. A CD of poets reading their own work and poems written by others is included. This handsome collection is especially appropriate for classroom use and instruction.... From the playful to the profound, the poems invite reflection and inspire further investigation."School Library Journal
