Summary: This book is comprised of many different children's poems.

Sounds: This book of poetry is mainly written in verses.

Images: Images in this book were very easy to picture not just from the illustrations but also from the words it self. The poems did a great job at painting a very clear picture.

Insight: A lot of these poems seemed to be very similar and very dry! I do not think they were very up lifting and they really didn't expand my awareness or give me much insight to any of the topics discussed in the poems.

A positive stretch: This set of poems would be best described as observing what was happening around the event. I didn't find any of the poems to be extremely creative.

Appropriateness fro occasions: These poems are very appropriate if you want to teach children about poems written in verse. However they really didn't teach me anything that I would want to pass on to my students.

I was really not a fan of this book of poetry however, I respect the author's creativity and the right to express their creativity.
