Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

First published in 1986 and just as fresh and relevant today, this widely acclaimed, child-friendly poetry anthology is now being reissued with a striking new jacket. In his introduction to this book Jim Trelease, bestselling author of The Read-Aloud Handbook, writes, “No one better recognizes the essence of the child-poetry connection than poet and anthologist Jack Prelutsky. . . . Here are more than 200 little poems to feed little people with little attention spans to help both grow. Marc Brown’s inviting illustrations add a visual dimension to the poems, which further engage young imaginations.” The poems are by 119 of the best-known poets of the 20th century.

This book has been selected as a Common Core State Standards Text Exemplar (Grades K-1, Poetry) in Appendix B.

Synopsis:

A lively new jacket by Marc Brown puts a fresh face on one of the first--and widely considered the best--poetry anthologies for preschoolers. "No one better recognizes the essence of the child-poetry connection than poet and anthologist Jack Prelutsky," writes Jim Trelease, author of The Read-Aloud Handbook, in his introduction to this child-friendly collection of more than 200 poems by well-known contemporary poets. Each poem in this 112 page book is "exuberantly illustrated," wrote The New York Times Book Review. With subjects ranging from waking up to going to bed and everything in between, here is "a joyous anthology that [is] bound to develop an appreciation for poetry at a very young age."--School Library Journal
