A Jar of Tiny Stars is one of the most popular poetry books from WordSong. This new edition is now expanded and includes the work of the latest five winners of the National Council of Teachers of English Award for Poetry for Children. By turns silly and wise, playful and thought-provoking, the poems in this collection were chosen by young readers as their favorites among those written by NCTE Award winners. New to this collection are works from Eloise Greenfield, Nikki Grimes, Mary Ann Hoberman, Lee Bennett Hopkins, and X. J. Kennedy. Rounding out the collection are poems by Arnold Adoff, John Ciardi, Barbara Esbensen, Aileen Fisher, Karla Kuskin, Myra Cohn Livingston, David McCord, Eve Merriam, Lilian Moore, and Valerie Worth.
