PRAISE PRAISE
Synopsis

Synopsis

Whether rhyming, tongue-tying, or defying structure, here are more than three dozen poems that simply beg to be read aloud. The creators of A POKE IN THE I and A KICK IN THE HEAD complete a triplet with this collection of lively rhymes and tricky tongue twisters, poems for more than one voice, bilingual poems — and poems that may just inspire kids to memorize them. Paul B. Janeczko offers a range of gems, from classic Shakespeare and Lear to anonymous rhymes to contemporary riffs on everything under the sun, while Chris Raschka counterpoints with the vibrant accents of his wittily detailed artwork.
Praise

Praise

Skillfully chosen, the poems cover a thought-provoking array of topics weaving seamlessly from silly to solemn to spooky...With much to offer for both classroom use and pleasure reading, this delightful addition to the series should be a first purchase.
—School Library Journal (starred review)

Punchy collages flutter acorss airy white pages in loose visual arrangements; torn scraps of origami paper layer with fluid lines in tart color... By the time the volume closes with Whitman's "I Hear America Singing", readers will be emboldened to join in the "song".
—Publishers Weekly (starred review)

The universally strong peoms, expertly tuned to both the anthology's theme and its young audience, include classic and contemporary selections...superbly noisy celebration of language that's sure to convert even the most reluctant poerty readers.
