Grades: 3 - 12

Reviews:
"A bouncy, jazzy score enhances the 2009 film...What comes across is Keats' respect for his young readers and the timeless beauty of his universal tales. Teachers and parents will also enjoy this film." - Booklist
"Keat's understanding of childhood experiences, and warm, eye-catching artwork continue to make his work a popular choice for children. Art and literature teachers will want this terrific program for classroom use." - Starred Review, School Library Journal
