Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, 2003 - Juvenile Nonfiction - 40 pages
From an early age, we are awestruck by the shining beacons in our sky: we know the brilliant sun, we gaze at the dreamy silver moon, we watch the countless stars twinkling as if saying hello. So far away yet so present here in our daily lives, the sun, moon, and the stars mark the passage of time, bringing light and life, warmth, hope, and wonder. And they have inspired poets and artists through the ages to capture their meaning.
This heartfelt and lovely poetry collection includes poems by Frank Asch, Aileen L. Fisher, Russell Hoban, Patricia Hubbell, Christina Rossetti, and more.
