HBO Family has produced some lovely shows for children, and this latest creation, A Child’s Garden of Poetry, is no exception.
In a winning combination of interviews with children, famous narrators, lovely animation, and, of course, wonderful poetry by the likes of e.e. cummings and Robert Frost, HBO Family makes poetry accessible and enjoyable. Although targeted toward children, this DVD is pure joy to see and hear. Prepare to dream in iambic pentameter.
HBO Family presents an all-new special from the producers of the acclaimed, award-winning Classical Baby series that will give children an appreciation of the music and mystery of poetry. Poems by some of the greatest writers of all time are brought to life through lyrical animation and readings by some of today’s most respected performers. Welcome to A Child’s Garden of Poetry!
