Fantastic

A great book of poems for children or adults. Reading it always makes me feel like a kid again. It is a good way to introduce poetry to children.

Wonderful!

A great book which makes poetry accessible to children. I loved this growing up, and still remember one poem by heart.

"I cannot go to school today said little Peggy Ann McCay. I have the measles and the mumps............you say today is Saturday? Goodbye, I'm going out to play."
