it was ok
bookshelves: 1st, 2nd, poetry, kindergarten, humor, preschool
Read in July, 2009

These poems remind me of Dr Seuss in a way, with lots of predictable rhyming. But it doesn't quite have the wackiness or off the wall appeal of Dr. Seuss or Shel Silverstein.
"In the heart of the city
Is a place people meet
It's this and it's that
And it's called Silly Street.
There are snowballs for sale
If you feel like throwing,
And bubbles to buy
If you feel like blowing.
If you like to jump rope,
There are plenty to use.
There are cots in the shade
If you're needing a snooze."
But kids will enjoy the rhythm and rhyme, plus the colorful illustrations.
