The editor, illustrator, and designer make a good case for the importance of Kipling's legacy, and do much to help the reader understand the popularity of his poems when he was alive. But I am not persuaded to like many of them much. Too strident, relentless, and, of course, the imperialistic viewpoint is too ugly from this 21st C. viewpoint. And to think that he was among the most thoughtful and careful men of his time & place.

Kipling's verse is pretty well suited to this format. I like the illustrations a lot, though some of the people look a bit off occasionally.

For some reason, Kipling's style didn't seem to translate well for me into poetry. I'll have to revisit him some other time!

I think that Kiplings poems are really dry and not interesting.

"Poetry for Young People: Rudyard Kipling" contains 28 of Kipling's poems. Sharpe's vibrant paintings illustrate the verse, whether of animals in the jungle or ships at sea. The emotions in all of the characters whether human or animal are conveyed very well by these illustrations. Each poem contains background information at the top of the page and unfamiliar words defined at the bottom of the page. The introduction gives details on events of Kipling's life and their relationship to his work. I [...]

I have been a life-long fan of Rudyard Kipling and was read many of his poems by my parents as a child. I grew up on "Barrack Room Ballads" and "Just So Stories" (I can still recite Gunga-Din by heart), and this compilation is perfect for young readers. The illustrations help to give a visual representation of the poem itself, which is important for children who are reading poetry. Poetry can create a reality for the reader, but children may have trouble understanding metaphor and thus may misin [...]

Kipling's poetry is astounding. I was reminded of how wonderful his writing is when re-reading some of these incredible, concise poems wherein each and every word is used wisely. There is a rhythmic lint and tone in each sentence that conveys sharp, immediate images.Lately, I've been thinking a lot about friendship and the following piece was timely:The Thousandth ManOne man in a thousand, Solomon says,Will stick more close than a brotherAnd it's worth while seeking him half your daysIf you find [...]

Rudyard Kipling is the man that wrote the famous book The Jungle Book, which was also made into a Disney movie. This book is a composition of his poems written. The poems were written in the early 1900s and you can tell. I don't think the material is something any children would actually understand now days. The illustrations are very interesting though. They are very similar to those of The Jungle Book. And actually, that is what came to mind whenever I saw the illustrations throughout the book [...]

I really liked how there was a history given behind Rudyard Kipling at the beginning of the book. It allowed me to understand where he is coming from in his poems. I also liked how each poem has a description of what it was about and what the poem's purpose was. For those unfamiliar words to our day, I love how the definitions were included for several words found in the poems. My only problem with the book is that they included a portion of the poems and rarely did the full poem. Being able to [...]

A selection of 28 of Kipling's poems (or parts of poems) meant to introduce young people to the famous poet. There is an intro with a short biography of the author/poet.I thought that this collection had a nice variety of Kipling's poetry. The editor did a great job of introducing the poems and explaining them for kids. The glossaries on each page of probably unfamiliar words are also very helpful. For the most part the illustrations served to enhance the poetry, there was only one of the pages [...]

Wow, this is a remarkable man. I grabbed his book of poems on a whim, and I loved his writing! Thoughtful and inspiring, and certainly beautiful. After reading the poems, I noticed at the beginning is a 3 page bio about him. He has a triumphant life story, and I am eager to learn more about him. Certainly eager to read more from him.

This series of poetry picture books is just excellent. I think we underestimate what kids can enjoy and understand. These are not all children's poems, but my young boys (ages 6 and 8) really have enjoyed them. Because they are in a picture-book format we read them over and over. Kipling may be the best author for boys between the ages of 4 and 8--both his stories and poems.
