    " i spent a whole school year reading aloud to my kids from this book. many lovely poems, although i skipped the section on Poe. much of his work feels too dark and hopeless to me. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Melissa | 4/21/2011

    " Some of the language & imagery is beautiful, but in general I find Longfellow a bit hard to swallow. I consider this epic poem to be a wannabe Iliad. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Samuel | 3/24/2011

    " A wonderful tale that spans generations and covers lands further than the eye can see. A sometimes repetitive but beautiful read. But be warned, this is extended poetry and can be tricky to swallow. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lacy | 2/21/2011

    " Loved it. Kind of wish I had read it in school so I could discuss some of the more poignant lines.
    I found myself reading it aloud so I could really get the rhythm of the song going. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Pukapuka | 2/13/2011

    " i really like the way the words sound and flow
    its great to read aloud alone in bed

    "Hark you, Bear! you are a coward, And no Brave, as you pretended" "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Aaron | 12/31/2010

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 King Dinösaur | 4/7/2010

    " Very evocative and beautiful tale of Hiawatha told with lyric imagery and a true appreciation of the Native American way of life before things changed drastically and terribly. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Taymar | 2/22/2010

    " I don't like this book at all. I had to read it for school and first of all, I don't like being forced to read anything. Second, there are big words, too many hard names to remember, and it is just plain confusing. "
