Excellent collection of simple children's poetry from around the world. Nicely illustrated! ( )

Summary: This book is a collection of rhymes and songs that are told around the world, from China, Korea, Japan, Iran and more. Along with each poem is a large painting of children acting it out or surrounded in an environment that mirrors the poem if it talks about a forest or animals.
Review: this book makes a good poetry book because it celebrates the cultures of countries around the world, so if there were a time when the class wanted to celebrate a certain culture, this book might have some written poetry or songs that the class could listen to and talk about. This book brings attention to cultures and values that are different are shared through the world.

This is a book of collected poems from all around the world. Various cultures, themes, and seasons are covered in these poems. It would be great to incoprorate in your classroom to just pull a poem from every once in a while instead of reading from all at once. ( )

This story is filled with many poems about children all around the world. From a young girl in China to a young boy in the United States. Every poem in this book was different every time you turned the page. And every time that you turned the page each and every child had a different story to say. ( )

This composition of traditional poems from all over the globe provides us with evidence that poetry unites our world. Exploring the poetry in this book allows the reader to discover and learn about other cultures, as well as compare them to his or her own culture. ( )
