Jack Prelutsky's poems are fun and Marilyn Hafner illustrations make the perfect companion. These might not be the best memorization poems, but they are excellent for budding readers in their independence. I enjoyed It's Valentine's Day nearly as much as It's Christmas!.

As we have started to gather more and more I Can Read, leveled readers I have been anxious to see what I would find in a Level 3 "Reading Alone" with "complex plots for confident readers". My first experience is absolutely a posi
It’s Valentine’s Day by Jack Prelutsky and pictures by Yossi Abolafia (1983), is an anthology of his poems about Valentine’s Day. These are simple, funny, easy to read and enjoyable poems for children of all ages, because everyone likes to laugh. The poems are enhanced by drawings, created by ink and water color, on each page throughout the book. Prelutsky creates rhythm in his poem by using word choice and placement to make enjoyable rhymes. These poems are a must-read to teach humorous lessons ...more
Since today is this Valentines, I decided to borrow this from the library and read it.
I really enjoy Jack Prelutsky's books of poetry; they are quite wonderful and this one is wonderful as well. While this book of poetry is about Valentine's Day, I don't think they are your typical Valentines poems.

There is a poem about a cake gone wrong, a boy buying chocolates for his mom for Valentine's Day and then, eating them all! Giving Valentines to pets and more.

Overall, it's a fun and nice book of po
I like Jack Prelutsky, I think his poems are swell. I use them a lot, along with Shel Silverstein's poems when teaching that ever-lovin "Fluency" that's gettin everyone in education all hot and bothered about.
I REALLY love this book because when my son found it he copied one of the poems on a home made card for a girl he has a crush on wrote, "Your hair looks nice" on the other side and signed it "your secret admirer".
and I think that is so f-ing cute, it makes me almost be in favor of Valent

I am not sure what I think of this re-packaged as an early reader/leveled reader.
I grabbed this book to use in preschool this week. It is probably better for a little older audience. I usually really enjoy Jack Prelutsky, but some of these poems were a little to forced. He's a fun, silly poet for kids.

Cute! This is one of the better children's book of poems that I have read in a long time. It has good flow, cute stories and matching/well-done illustrations. Definitely a must read for all young poets. =)
"Shannon 1987." Neat to see I have a complete set of Prelutsky's holiday poems. I'll need to make a new book box for him at school.
This is a book full of short poems related to Valentine's Day. Students could learn about rhyming words as all the poems rhyme.
