This book makes reading poetry fun for any child. The book illustrates children of all races interacting with each other and nature. These poems are fun to read as they offer verses of proverbs, nursery rhymes, and folk songs.

Tags: Poetry, Kids, Picturebook PoetrySummary: Small book yet it's really loaded with cute, witty, wonderful and humorous poems, mostly rhyming. Most would appeal to any child and to the adult reading it aloud to everyone. Has a few nice pictures as well to help promote the meaning of the book. Personal Reaction: Just like most kiddos, my kids are all about making words rhyme, repeat, and sound goofy. They would laugh at you if you made a joke of of peas and carrots. Kids are so funny when they are young. Extension Ideas: Having the kids sing what you are reading works well from my reflection assignment experiences.
