This collection of poetry should be in every elementary classroom and should be read aloud to the students. This book has never failed to help me get the attention of my students, they like it and I like it too. This book covers many subjects kids need to address in school and in life.

Kids Pick the Funniest Poems
Selected by Bruce Lansky

This review is written by Caleb
(Age 9.)Stockbridge Central School (5 stars.)

There are a lot of various poets in this book, I can't name them all of them, but I can tell you two of them are great! My #1 favorite poem is "Help Wanted" by Timothy Tocher. The poem is about Santa needing new reindeer. The first bunch has grown old and has problems like arthritis and not liking the cold. My #2 favorite poem is "The Student's Prayer" by Kalli Dakos. I think it is funny for a kid to pray to pass tomorrows test. I recommend this book kids who like humorous poems!!!!

As a No.1 fan of Bruce lansky, I LOVE this book. the poems in it was not only funny and humorous, but also very inspiring. Unfortunately, I am not able to purchase such a book as there aren't any copies in Hong Kong except in the library in the city. I hoe that there will be more of your books sent to Hong Kong so as to let more of us Hong Kong people to know more about you and enjoy the joy of reading poetry!

This is one of the best collections of children's poetry I have come across (and I consider myself a connoisseur). These poems are hilarious- sometimes didactic, sometimes fanciful and absurd-- they all appeal to the humorous sensibilities of children (and adults). This has worked for me as an extremely successful present on many an occasion- highly recommended!!!

This is a terrific book to get kids hooked on poetry. It includes poems by popular authors such as Shel Silverstein, Jack Prelutsky, Joyce Armor, and of course, the editor, Bruce Lansky. I bought it used for about $4, and consider it a great buy. I'm glad I have a hardback edition, as I'm sure this book will get lots of use.

Most of them were a little long for what I needed, however. I needed poems that 3rd-5th graders could memorize and tack onto the end of the school play.
