The Children's Own Longfellow
Houghton Mifflin, 2001 - 96 pages
Aptly referred to as the children’s poet, Longfellow wrote poems, many of which read as adventure stories that have been cherished by young readers and listeners through the years. Now a new generation of readers can read and enjoy some of America’s most often recited poetry. This new issue of the original, updated with a more contemporary jacket and beautifully illustrated by some of the best known American artists of the late nineteenth century, contains eight poems popular with children: The Wreck of the Hesperus, The Village Blacksmith, Evangeline, The Song of Hiawatha, The Building of the Ship, The Castle-Builder, Paul Revere’s Ride, and The Building of the Long Serpent.
