A poetry celebration of nature, science, the environment, and the wonder of it all, from the Children's Poet Laureate

The Tree That Time Built is a moving anthology of more than 100 poems celebrating the wonders of the natural world and encouraging environmental awareness. With a focus on the outdoors, this collection taps into today's environmental movement and also presents wonders of nature and science, most especially Darwin's theory of evolution, from which this collection gains its name. Included is an exclusive audio CD of many of the poets reading their own work.

Including dynamic introductions to nine sections of poems, plus brief introductions to many individual poems, this collection reaches out to young people and stimulates their innate curiosity and idealism.

This rich collection showcases a wide range of poets, including:

  • Theodore Roethke

  • Dylan Thomas

  • Carl Sandburg

  • Douglas Florian

  • Jeff Moss

  • Jack Prelutsky

  • Mary Ann Hoberman
