Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Kindergarten-Grade 3–Hoce employs wordplay in many of these 30 selections. About a fearless hen that braves fire or killer bees, he says, "My chicken may be many things/But she surely isn't chicken." Familiar phrases, such as "holy cow," become subjects of poems; only in this barnyard, it's "Holey Cow!" that captures everyone's attention, "For when she takes a tiny step/Milk leaks everywhere." The humor is age appropriate and poems about "ants in my plants" and a hoarse horse will appeal to children who are beginning to enjoy playing with language. Making use of end rhymes, the schemes and rhythms are familiar and predictable. Some of the selections are more successful than others and several phrases, such as "on the lam" or "swan song," might need some explanation. Fernandes's watercolor illustrations are clever and energetic and, in several instances, explain the verbal jokes. This book is fun, but it's also excellentfor classroom use; a "Wordplay Guide" that indicates language skills, such as identifying homophones, personification, and idioms, is appended.–Shawn Brommer, South Central Library System, Madison, WI

This book will have you on your feet and cheering for "Beyond Old MacDonald - Funny Poems from Down on the Farm." This is a wonderful book for parents and teachers to introduce or reintroduce kids to poetry. The poems include lots of wordplay and a wordplay guide is included for instructors to use to develop lessons. This is a book children will want to hear or read again and again and even be encouraged to try their hand at writing their own poetry. The illustrations are comical and compliment the poetry well.

I sat down with my 7-year old as we took turns reading the clever, witty little poem puns. I found myself laughing at the end of each pun, & my daughter occasionally stopping a moment, thinking, & finally laughing herself as she "got" the punchline. But, most of the puns she got right away. And if the 30 poems aren't reason enough to purchase this book, on the last page of the book the author/teacher includes a Word Play Guide to point out the language skill each of the poems employ (pun, idiom, personification, etc.). Making it an excellent teaching tool.
