A Journey through Time is a resource book to treasure, an invaluable collection of poetry for use by teachers at every stage of elementary school. The poems are arranged by age group from 6 to 14 and support the subject matter of lessons, from botany and physics to history and astronomy, and, of course, English. Works by Shakespeare, Blake, Wordsworth, Browning appear along with the refreshingly unfamiliar. Also included are meditative verses for teachers. It is wonderful to see A Journey through Time beautifully hardbound at long last - and a joy to see it back in print.
