The only drawback (and reason why I didn't give the book 5 stars) is the illustrations. Most of the illustrations are traditional monochrome drawings. While they are well done, they are not as colorful or as imaginative as the illustrations in Prelutsky's "The 20th Century Children's Poetry Treasury."
Have fun reading.
(I must point out, however, that the inclusion of controversial poet Sean Hickey's "Bang Bang You're Dead 50 Bullets In Your Head" might cause younger readers some concern).
The poems are mostly silly and very entertaining. We sometimes like to take turns picking out poems to read at bedtime. Humorous children's poems help build creativity. I can think of nothing negative about this book.
Put this book in your cart and buy it. You will be happy that you did.
This is such a fun read- there is a wonderful variety of poems, long, short, silly, sad- all great. And what still amazes me today, as I sift through its pages, the number of very "adult" poets that are compiled in here. The poets you study in college Lit classes because they're so very important. Poets that you might think their work would appeal to ten year olds- but they do- a testament to the power of their work, I think.
Definitely a book that should be treasured.
