    1. What a gorgeous book It is a greatpoem too I just want to stare at the pages It honors the story of Hiawatha and the traditional stories of his tribe.


    2. Susan Jeffers illustrated edition of her abridgement of Longfellow s epic poem, The Song of Hiawatha, is simply astounding Jeffers notes in her introduction that this is a poem from which her mother read to her as a child a poem whose lovely imagery began to enter her daydreams She says further that upon re reading it as an adult, she knew she wanted to illustrate the section that she d loved as a girl The part of the poem Jeffers chose to abridge concerns the boyhood of Hiawatha, as he grows fr [...]


    3. This introduces kids to a classic poem, but it s not the entire poem it focuses on Hiawatha s early boyhood years I may have heard the poem as a child, but maybe not Perhaps I m recognizing lines from the poem that I ve encountered elsewhere Jeffers art captures the feeling of the north woods, and I appreciate the intro I wish authors would include notes either at the beginning or the end of their books.



    4. Susan Jeffers focuses on the classic poem s verses that depict Hiawatha s boyhood The beautiful paintings are so vivid and detailed and they match the beauty in the language of the poem wonderfully This book is a good picture book introduction to Henry Wadsworth Longfellow s epic poem, The Song of Hiawatha.


    5. Okay, so this is a random add but it popped in my head This is a great story for primary school aged children especially when read perfectly with the whispering sounds like my mom did, when she read to my class and I as kids It s a must own for any American kid.


    6. I have always loved the poem Hiawatha and this abridged version is a beautifully illustrated introduction for young listeners.





    7. A lovely walk down memory trail, I can still hear my mom s voice as I read this poem Beautiful illustrations with an unusual fine line texture Book is oversized.


    8. My parents read this meaningful story poem to us when we were young, and my baby loves it now The drawings and the rhythm keep us coming back.
