Ages 9-12. Wilbur’s poetry is delightful, witty and perhaps most valuable, wonderful for both children and adults. The book explores opposites, employing somewhat advanced vocabulary but clearly addressed to children. The combination of higher vocabulary and targeted audience offers youth the opportunity to advance their own verbal skills, through the careful and gentle attention from the author. The poetry is free form, but it rhymes, making it easier to understand how a word should be pronounced. This book of poetry is well designed to encourage discussion between adults and children, and also has the advantage of appeal to both girls and boys. Opposites, More Opposites and a Few Differences is great for a collection which serves youth who have access personal discussion with mentors or parents.
