The poems are written by various authors but have one common element - they are all short, most being 2 or 3 verses, and every one makes me smile.

To me, this is evidence that Jane Yolen has done a good job of collecting poems that resonate with little ones and inspire them to appreciate the magic of words. And I really enjoy reading it to them!
