Similar to Sill More Small Poems, Worth does a good job at showing different varieties. This particular book covers poems about magnifying glass, kitten (my favorite obviously), safety pin, earth worms, lawnmower, sparrow, magnet, lions, caterpillar, fireworks, flamingo, hose, mosquito, shoes, sea lions, sidewalks, crab, weeds, haunted house, toad, pumpkin, Christmas lights, dinosaurs, and soap bubble all in different lengths and styles.

"More Small Poems" is about ordaniry objects. Great for teaching in the classroom and tie-in in the lesson and things the children can connect to. Teaching poetry with this book can become a lot easier. ( )

More Small Poems is a book of twenty five poems written by Valerie Worth. I read another book from this series and loved how simply yet enjoying it was. The author takes everyday objects and turns them into poems. It is great to be able to see how the author sees these objects and it varies from how kids or adults may see them. ( )

This is my kind of poetry book. In other words, this is a poetry book for those who do not necessarily love poetry. In it, I find beautiful, simple, and somewhat houmous descriptions of simple things. This poetry book is a great tool to introduce reluctant students to poetry. It also invites readers to notice the little things that their eyes and minds pass over so often. Noticing things like a crack in a sidewalk or a garden hose may seem silly to students at first - until they realize that their descriptions can be poetry! The accessibility of these poems makes poetry not so scary, especially for those who are starting to write poetry. All it takes is a little bit of noticing to write a poem. ( )

This is a small book of poems about mosquitos, mgnifying glasses, soap bubbles, and many other random objects. The poems are very eloquently written, but at the same time simple, appealing to yoounger readers. I like the fact that most of these poems don't rhyme. It teaches children that not all poems have to rhyme. I was kind of bored with some of the subjects, but overall they were really good. ( )
