As a bibliophile myself, and a fan of well-written YA and children's books, I expected to enjoy this book myself. Quite honestly, I did not. It is simply too puerile and immature for me to derive any satisfaction or pleasure from its content. Nevertheless I do have two children under 5, and the older one is definitely a fan of reading books, so I plan to read this to her instead.
Mostly what I obtained from this book, personally, was an introduction to the concept of the cinquain, which is not a poem format with which I was previously acquainted. If you would like more examples or background, you may go to [...] to learn more.
Knowing the audience for whom this book was surely intended, it makes almost more sense for this book to have been published as a board book (cardboard books for children under 5), rather than an eBook that is strictly limited to PC or mobile phone platforms. I am not one of those parents who lets my children play with my cell phone - my young daughter has an iPad that she may use - so this book will need to be read under strict supervision, which is unfortunate. It's understandable for a self-published book to be somewhat restricted in its mediums, but a more child-accessible method of publishing would have been preferred. This is the reason I have docked a star from my rating.
Despite this, it seems a generally good introduction for small children. For those who are interested in home schooling, or otherwise assisting in the education of their children in literature and poetry, it will be a good resource for beginner readers and budding poets.
