Cute, fun Haiku poems for children. An easy read and a great way to introduce children to Haikus, as well as Lantern poems.

A good little book of poetry for kids, with haikus and lanterns instead of the typical limerick style poem found in other popular books. The poetry is short and sweet, with a surprising amount of variety in subject matter, but all easy reads for kids. I never knew of lantern style poetry before this book, and was pleasantly surprised by Japanese lantern shaped poems. I too would be quite happy were it to rain pancakes. ( )
