Timberdoodle's review
 
  • Sample Track - If by Rudyard Kipling


  • Classic Poems for Boys is a rousing collection of robust poems for adventurers of all ages. From the moving historical favorites like The Charge of the Light Brigade, Casabianca, and the raw and gritty Gunga Din; to wistful, thoughtful poems like If and The Arrow and The Song; to the humorous There was an Old Man with a Beard and You are Old, Father William, this is a collection to be treasured. The superb narrators of Classic Poems for Boys bring the words to life and add richness and meaning through their inflections, lilts and brogues.

    Suitable for Girls Too
    And don't be put off by the title. Having grown up in a family of six daughters, I was surprised how many poems depicting battles, escapes, and adventures in foreign lands I remembered from my mother's nightly reading. Classic Poems for Boys are poems to suit any mood, and any gender.
