Wonderful book of poems for children
This is a great book to read to young children. The illustrations are cute, fun to look at. The poems are lovely. They are fairly short so they'd be good for children to memorize. Ex: A Modern Dragon A train is a dragon tat roars through the dark. He wriggles his tail as he sends up a spark. He pierces the night with his one yellow eye, And all the earth trembles when he rushes by. By Rowena Bennett Raindrops How brave a ladybug must be! Each drop of rain is big as she. Can you imagine what you'd do if raindrops fell as big as you? By Aileen Fisher This is just a sampling ... There are 88 pages of these cute poems ... With lots of pictures on each page. I think older children would enjoy reading this book all by themselves. I highly recommend this book.
