Great paper cut collage illustrations. Poetry was not on a par with Calef Brown, who has a similar style and feel. ( )

Nice book of fun poems. Very interesting illustrations made of collages. ( )

This is a fun and exciting book to read because it presents stories that are far fetched and bizarre. Children will love this story because it gives them a chance to sit back and think about their own stories and what they might want to write about. The illustrations also tell a story all by themselves. This helps the children realize how important pictures can be and what they are used for. Something else that stands out in this book is that the text is full of rich vocabulary for children. There are plenty adjectives that give bright and fluffy descriptive words children will love to learn and read. Take your child on a fun and joyous read by exposing them to "Not So True Stories And Unreasonable Rhymes." ( )

This is a book filled with different poems and rhymes about different creative imaginary things. This is a great book to use during story time to keep children interested in the different poems. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0811837734, Hardcover)

Imaginative poems and intricate cut-paper illustrations combine to make the ordinary—a train ride—extraordinary and the extraordinary—a galactic car race—out of this world. Brimming with detail, the lively illustrations reveal something new with each visit. And the characters in the poems will linger long after the book is closed. Not So True Stories is a stunning debut from newcomer Carin Berger.

(retrieved from Amazon Thu, 12 Mar 2015 18:07:18 -0400)
