Interesting nonsense poetry, but not really my thing (or my daughters). ( )
  ChelseaVK | Dec 10, 2021 |
Summary: I didn't realize it before I checked this book out, but there are so many different poems written in it.
Personal Reaction: I think this book could be used for number of occasions. It has all different kinds of poems in it.
Classroom Extensions:
1. In the classroom, we could discuss the many different kinds of poems.
2. We could talk about our favorite poem in the book and why it was our favorite.
3. We could each write our own poem and share them with the rest of the class.

Alligator Pie By Dennis Lee

This rhyming children's poetry book is full of silly stories. The interesting art work and the memorable rhymes is fun and easy for little children to comprehend.

Personal Reaction:

A very cute book of rhymes that makes me want to have and read more than once.

Classroom Extension Ideas:
1) Use Alligator Pie as a song and dance time for class.
2) Use while teaching about the letter A. Have a worksheet after reading story with an alligator and a Letter A. ( )

This book has a poem about different stories. They mention modern things such as batman, which makes the poems more interesting to children. The illustrations are very fun and creative for the children to look at as well. The poems are very silly and not very serious, which I enjoyed as well. ( )

This was my first poetry book I read, and I thoroughly enjoyed it. One of the first reasons I liked this was how easy the poems were to read. The flow and rhyming that many of the entries had were engaging but easy enough for a young child to comprehend. This would be a great introductory poetry book for students because of how each is written out. I also enjoyed the illustrations that went along with the poems. Although not much detail was given in them, the pictures went along perfectly with the poems and gave just enough for the children to have something fun to look at. ( )
