Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreS-Gr 2-An anthology of poetry intended to act as a bridge between the "straightforward rhyme and repetition of nursery rhymes" and the "intriguing mysteries of poetry." Many of the selections do just that. Children will love the sounds in "The Corn Scratch Kwa Kwa Hen" by modern children's poet Julie Holder and the inspired silliness of "An Introduction to Dogs" by classic poet Ogden Nash. However, a number of the poems contain words and images that will require explanation, while others do not seem to have a point or an image to offer. The watercolor illustrations are equally uneven. Those of animals are full of action, but the pictures of humans are wooden and flat. Despite this, the colors are vibrant. The illustrator has gone to great pains to hide the creatures mentioned in the poems, and children will enjoy searching these illustrations (a la "I Spy") for rats, cats, and spiders. However, Jane Yolen's Alphabestiary (Boyds Mills, 1994) is a much stronger choice.-Timothy Capehart, Leominster Public Library, MA
