This is a collection of short poems by Children’s Poet Laureate J. Patrick Lewis. While not specific to a subject, it’s fun, sometimes funny and often sweet. Lewis demonstrates his ability with different types of poems, and the illustrations by Matthew Cordell complement the text. All the poems are appropriate for the very young, but I would recommend this collection to upper elementary as a fun read aloud or even something to memorize.
