I bought this little collection of poems for next year when my oldest son will be in Grade 2. The poems are so simple and sweet, some funny and all with really cute illustrations. A great way to introduce poetry to young children!

My 5 year old daughter reads this poetry book over and over, and although the poems were simple and appealing, many of them used literary devices such as similes, metaphors, and personification that I was able to introduce to her.

By Nicola Mansfield on December 4, 2013
Format: Paperback
An unassuming collection of easy to read poetry for early readers. Simple, short, rhyming poems sorted into sections such as pets, vehicles, weather, etc. A variety of mostly known poets such as X.J. Kennedy, Aileen Fisher, Carl Sandburg and Dorothy Aldis are collected. The book doesn't have a table of contents but makes up for that with an index of authors and titles. I found the illustrations to be lacklustre but otherwise a decent book of poems that suffices as an easy reader.

i bought the book to replace a library book. the library would not accept it because it was a library book, even though it was discarded. but other wise it was great.
