This book is a great selection of poems chosen by kids for other children. It is a collection of all different kinds of poems. The themes of the poems are themes that children would find exciting. This book is great in a preschool setting where poems can be read to the children all the way through 6th grade where the children would work more one on one with the book of poems. This book appeals to children because the poems selected are the ideas of other children. This book would be great in the classroom to:
-inspire children to start their own collection of poems
-begin an activity that guides children through a book publishing process
-look at the individual poems and ask why the other children chose them
-decide which poem they would choose if they were asked to be in the book
-illusrate the poems in their own unique way

Published in aid of the International Year of the Child. It includes the daft "My name is Sluggery-Wuggery" by Pauline Clarke which we enjoyed when my elder son was 3 or so, and my favourite Michael Rosen poem " I've had this shirt".

This probably isn't the collection of the best poetry in the world, but when I was a young girl in primary school it had a lot of poems that I loved. And I still enjoy leafing through it, which is probably why it's falling apart at the seams. ( )
