Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 2-5–This collection of more than 100 poems features comical wordplay (Oh, Brother opens: If r were taken out of brother/Your brother would just be a bother…) as well as lots of fun riffs on Mother Goose rhymes and fairy tales. Many are about family, friends, and school. Anyone familiar with Wilson's picture books knows that she's a good writer with a fresh eye and a knack for child appeal. Those qualities are very much in evidence here. The humorous, light tone is similar to Jack Prelutsky's work, although Wilson has a serious side, too. For example, Golden Eggs shows a goose wearing a necklace labeled BLING; she's looking at an empty cradle, and the poem reads, She'd rather have/One fluffy chick/than a million golden eggs, you see. Blitt's line drawings are a great match for the verses. They are funny, dynamic, and full of personality. Plenty of white space adds to the accessible, inviting look. All in all, a great choice for read-alouds or individual enjoyment.–Lauralyn Persson, Wilmette Public Library, IL

More About the Author

My life is a series of lessons and moments that see me to the next lessons and moments. Some moments are sweet, some scary, some a blur gone too fast and forever missed. I write for children because all of these steps started there, in childhood, and that sense of wonder, keen curiosity, and the ability to see things much kinder and more magical than they actually were, fades as time passes and years and experience claim your naivety. For me it is a feeling only rekindled when I am creating books, stories and poetry.

My children, family and friends are a great inspiration to me, and the support of my readers is a tremendous honor. It is always my desire to entertain children and encourage them to think about and explore their world, and the worlds beyond, embrace creativity, and love learning for the duration of their life. Knowledge comes through words, so for me literacy is the foundation of education, and it bears the fruit of intelligent and empathetic citizens of this world and humanity.

Format: Kindle Edition
Personally I was disappointed in this book, due to loving her "BEAR" books so well. Poetry isn't my favorite thing to read but I will read it if it catches my attention and written by a favorite author thus why I checked this out for myself and my grandbaby. But the humor was different than what I enjoy. Written in the same format as Shel Silverstein's books. Which is good... but just not my humor.

This collection is fun, often very funny, and always kid-pleasing. The author knows what kids respond to. The variety of poems is mind-boggling. My 7yo and I thoroughly enjoyed it.
