This poetry book is a fun and silly way to show children how to write limerick poems. It can also be used to show different emotions. Each page includes a character and their feelings; whether sad, nervous, happy, or shy. Students can easily find a poem that relates to their lives.

This book can be use to teach about rhyming. Also it can be used to discuss how to portray different feelings in students' own poems.

There once was a book by Stephen . . . Just kidding - this is a school-themed book of limericks for 7 to 12 year olds. There are several very nice limericks, and one or two clunky ones that I could not get to sound proper to my ear. However, my biggest complaint (and it is not really a complaint) is that it is too short!

I really loved this book! The rhyming text is catchy and funny and I caught myself reading each page the same way! I like that it's not written with one main character and that each page seems to be a different character's feelings. Very cute!
