      When you look up the word mellifluous in the dictionary, I m pretty sure there s a picture of Julie Andrews there The woman could read a trigonometry textbook and make it sound soothing and lovely So this audio book gets two easy stars just for that The other star is for some pleasant poems and relaxing piano accompaniment But, try as I might, I ve never been a big poetry fan and even the delightful Ms Andrews can t change that She alternates recitations with her daughter, who has a nice voice, [...]

      I was underwhelmed by this There seemed a definite undertone of promoting both Andrews and Walton s own work, and while I find Andrews to be a good prose writer, neither she nor her daughter is much of a poet I also found a lot of the choices with appeal to sentimental parents and grandparents Am betting this will be bought by many a childless adult and by well meaning relatives as a gift for kids And if you re looking for a kid s gift I d go for The 20th Century Children s Poetic Treasury edit [...]

      For the record, I would listen to Julie Andrews recite all the possible side effects listed in the pamphlets that come from the pharmacist with our prescriptions and absolutely adore it We have the audiobook and we listen to it with the kids and it s absolutely delightful We get to hear old favorites and new to us poems and songs as well It really does feel like Julie is a part of the family we listen to her bedtime poems and stories Hurrah for Julie Andrews

      Poetry and Lullaby books are nearly as tempting as dark chocolate to me I really want to add this one to my collection sometime The watercolor illustrations are soft and sweet and perfectly supportive of the words of the poems and song lyrics included by Julie Andrews and her daughter Emma Walton Hamilton I love the nine thematic sections of the book because Julie Andrews introduces each section with sweet family memories and personal stories that really warm you to what is to come There s even [...]

      I borrowed the Cd and book from the library I have listened to the CD a number of times at bed time It brought back memories of my growing up I don t think of myself as someone who enjoys and reads a lot of poetry, but this collection brings back memories of my reading many of the poems There are many poems in the book, and I have started to read them 22 September 2014I just finished reading the large book of poems, put together by Julie Andrews and her daughter Emma There were a few poems by J [...]

      It s hard to rate this one appropriately On the one hand, I did not love the selection of poems I found some to be just boring poetry and some didn t read out loud very well Or at least I didn t feel like they were read out loud well.On the other hand, I got it primarily as soothing bedtime poetry, and Julie Andrews and Emma Walton have lovely voices that do make nice bedtime listening for the most part So it fulfilled its purpose fairly well There were a couple I especially liked, including the [...]

      Lovely poetry read by Julie Andrews Edwards and her own daughter Purchased to share with my grandchildren It is soothing background for them now but hopefully they will enjoy it as they get older.I knew several of the selections while others were totally new, including some written by the narrators The selections were organized in nice themed groups including humor and nature I really enjoyed the readings by mother and daughter.

      The poems are on the sappy side, particularly the originals I listened to the audiobook and of course Julie Andrews is a wonderful reader Unfortunately, about 40% is read by her daughter, who is not as good.

      This collection of poetry is intended for readers ages three and up It is an anthology of poetry collected by Julie Andrews and her daughter, Emma Watson Hamilton The book contains poetry by numerous famous authors, including William Shakespeare, Emily Dickinson, and Langston Hughes To begin with, let me say that the book is beautiful Many of the pages have full paintings on them, done by James McMullan They are vibrant and lovely additions to the poetry Pages without full paintings still have s [...]

      This book collects a variety of gentle, child friendly poems and songs, selected and edited by Julie Andrews I d really like to give this book a high rating, many of the poems are wonderful classics, and Julie Andrews is very charming and likeable The problem is, some of her choices of inclusions are totally baffling I wasn t interested in some of the poems, but I guess that s a matter of taste More problematic was some of the songs included, they work when sung, but are stilted and strange when [...]

      Julie Andrews Collection of Poems, Songs, and Lullabies is an audio version of anthology of poetry by various authors to include poems by Julie Andrews, her daughter Emma Walton Hamilton and many of their family members Poetry by well known authors such as William Shakespeare, Emily Dickenson, Robert Frost, and A.A Milne are also found in this collection Since the book contains lullabies I believe the book is intended for children of all ages from young infants and into adulthood The anthology c [...]

      The poems in this collection are wonderful and the original watercolor illustrations are lovely There are over two hundred poems Most of the poems are written by famous poets including Wordsworth, Frost, Dickinson, Emerson, and Shakespeare , and there are also some very good poems written by the two authors, and written by Julie Andrews s father and grandfather I was a little disappointed in the accompanying audio CD I thought the authors could have selected better poems from the collection to r [...]

      A nice collection of mostly traditional children s poems with songs interspersed and with a few lullaibes Poets are diverse, ranging from Jack Prelutsky to Ralph Waldo Emerson, Langston Hughes to Ted Hughes The unifying theme is optimism for life,which could have led to an oversweet, treacly bunch of poems But the merely sweet is largely overriidden by the carefully attentive, and the collection, as a whole, is quite readable, if not always profound The poems are held togehter by a consitent, dr [...]

      This anthology of poetry is as beautiful on the inside as it looks on the cover It is full of child appropriate poems, many by famous poets, on topics such as nature, the seasons, feelings, family, and animals As this week marked the beginning of Spring I have been reading a new springtime poem from it aloud to my first graders each day I would caution anyone who intends to use the book in a classroom though, that some of the poems have references to God, so just pre read carefully before choosi [...]

      My daughter received this her first Christmas and I ve been reading selections from it to her ever since I appreciate the variety of themes and how they re categorized, as well as the personal musings and writings of Julie and Emma, the mother daughter team who compiled it Included is a CD which we ve listened to only once or twice, but Andrews certainly has a knack for storytelling as well.

      This is a delightful collection of fun and serious poems and songs for kids everything from Robert Frost to Shel Silverstein to William Blake to Shakespeare to Robert Louis Stevenson and a few fun originals Our library s copy also had the CD song accompaniment which was lovely This was a completely delightful distraction for an afternoon with the kids, when the world seems terrible this weekend.

      There are many poetry anthologies available, but I foresee checking this one out of the library many times There are the expected classic poems by Blake, Emerson, Rossetti,and Tennyson There are recent favorites by Silverstein and Prelutsky What sets this book apart from other anthologies is the addition of lyrics from Broadway composers like Rodgers and Hammerstein, Loesser, and Sondheim Very nice

      Could,not finish the book I just could not get over the privilege flowing through every single word I love Julie Andrews and I loved her voice but the poems did not get to me Her stories of her childhood were so foreign so unreal that just didn t work for me A cultural clash I think What a pity

      There are very few books that I actually want to BUY why buy if you can get them at the library , but I am saving up for this one It is amazing Poems span from Broadway songs to Blake The illustrations are entertaining and each poem has a wonderful rhythmic pop that makes storytime so much fun.

      In some ways this was delightful I really enjoyed hearing Julie Andrews reading as well as her daughter and liked learning about their family I also quite liked the collection of poems There were some of my favorites and lots of new ones I wasn t a huge fan of the interlude music, though A little too pop jazzy not harmonically stable for my taste.
