    What a lovely book of poems written by Dennis Canfield. I appreciate how he made it more personal and touching by signing the book and noting that he wrote the eleven short poems to read with his older daughter, who was then three years old. I am early childhood educator who cares for a group of 2-3 year olds. I brought the book to school and read "The Robin and the Sparrow" and "The Squirrel's House" at morning meeting time. They asked for me to read them again and again! Thank you Dennis for w What a lovely book of poems written by Dennis Canfield.

    I received this book from a Goodread's giveaway. It is a book of poems for children based on events that happened between the author and his daughter as she grew, but the poems easily speak to all children. The poems are accompanied by beautiful artistry that match perfectly the tale the poems describe. This book is very worth the sharing between parents and their children and should be on children's bookshelves everywhere. I received this book from a Goodread's giveaway.

    The Robin and the Sparrow: A Book of Children's Poems is a wonderful book! The author has a gift that he is sharing and I am very appreciative. My granddaughter is beginning her career in childhood education and so I am including it in a collection I've begun for her. Thank you!

    Beautiful book of sweet poems that touch the heart I loved every poem in this lovely book. They are short and simple but so beautifully written and really sweet. Daddy Day has to be my favourite one. It shows the innocence of a child who just longs to spend a whole day with their dad. These moments are not to be taken for granted. Very soon children grow up and will not be so sweet and innocent and it'll be hard to have time for such bonding. The illustrations are also beautiful and bright.

    I received this endearing poetry book by Dennis Canfield free through a Goodreads giveaway. Warmth and heart are the first words that come to mind when I think of these eleven poems! Each poem is accompanied by a colorful illustration, which captures the spirit and tenderness of the poetry. The Robin and the Sparrow, Daddy Day, and Ladybug are my favorites! The inspiration for this verse was the author's three-year-old daughter. I'm thankful he preserved and shared these moments!

    This is a sweet children's book of 11 poems - each has a lovely color picture to go with it. I read this to my 3 year-old great nephew - his favorite poem was Ladybug. My favorites are the title poem 'The Robin and the Sparrow', 'The Squirrel's House' (teaching to clean up the child's room), and 'The Rocking Chair' (nice for bedtime reading).

    I won this book in a Goodreads giveaway for free. I loved all of the poems and the beautiful illustrations. I particularly loved the poem called, Daddy Day because that's how my children associate the weekend days, too! The poems were just the right length to keep my 2 and 4 year old's attention and they loved the pictures! I won this book in a Goodreads giveaway for free.

    I won this book of poems in a Goodreads giveaway. I was particularly fond of the titular poem and The Robin's Nest , though each poem has a cute underlying message that both children and adults can understand and appreciate. The book I received was signed and personalized; pretty rad Mr.Canfield. Thank you for the book. I won this book of poems in a Goodreads giveaway.

    This is great little poetry book. The poems are engaging and interesting for kids and the illustrations are beautiful. My daughter said she liked the book. Her favorite poem is the one about the noise which scares itself (The Teddy Bear Hero). My favorites are The Squirrels House (about tidying up) and The Rocking Chair, a lovely bedtime poem.

    I received this book via Firstreads. It's a set of poems written for the author's 3-year-old, with a fine mix of education, fun, and basic 'manners'. A very enjoyable and worthwhile gift for many pre-schoolers, I'm sure. I received this book via Firstreads.
