Miracles: Poems by Children of the English- Speaking World Hardcover – March 1, 1984. by Richard Lewis (Author).

Because until very recently it was the only book of poetry written by children that I could find. As a child I loved reading poems written by other children. I continue to be touched and inspired by the poignant clarity found in the poems of "Miracles". Miracles" is a wonderful book for anyone who enjoys the poet voice. It should ALWAYS be in print. Children need to know and have such examples of their own muse.

Children's literature or juvenile literature includes stories, books, magazines, and poems that are made for children. Modern children's literature is classified in two different ways: genre or the intended age of the reader. The development of early children's literature, before printing was invented, is difficult to trace.

MIRACLES: Poems by Children of the English-Speaking World, collected by Richard Lewis. During the early 1960's, Richard Lewis, a New York elementary school teacher, traveled around the globe gathering 3,000 poems written by children aged 4 to 13. This selection of 200 of them deals with topics as universal as war, winter, cats, spiders, night and death. In Sylvia Ashton-Warner's view, it all adds up to ''a miracle'' that will fascinate both adults and young people. THE TWYBORN AFFAIR, by Patrick White.

Great book, good delivery time

I picked up a copy of this book a couple of years ago in a used bookstore and fell in love with it. I was frankly amazed by some of the selections. There are many poems of beauty and natural elegance and some that are quite amusing.
Of course, it's an uneven collection. Some of the are rather simplistic and obvious, about what you would expect from the average child. But a page or two later you are reading something that makes your eyes mist over and your heart beat a little faster. All-in-all this is a wonderful tribute to the creative instinct in children. As someone who writes poetry I keep this book nearby when I'm looking for inspiration or need reminding of the power of simple, heartfelt words that can convey so much.

Such a delightful book! I enjoy it so much and believe children would really love the poems as well.

I was given this book in 1968 and it remains one of my favorites. Why? Because until very recently it was the only book of poetry written by children that I could find. As a child I loved reading poems written by other children. The language and metaphors sounded real to me, as in "I hear the drummers strike the sky" to describe "Thunder". I continue to be touched and inspired by the poignant clarity found in the poems of "Miracles".
"Miracles" is a wonderful book for anyone who enjoys the poet voice. It should ALWAYS be in print. Children need to know and have such examples of their own muse. And adults need to listen and be reminded of their own.

Pure magic in a book.
