Staff Reviews


The good (Lunchroom Magic by Charles Ghigna), the bad (It's Today? by Sara Holbrook) and the naughty (The Drinking Fountain by Kenn Nesbitt) will have your students, children and grandchildren laughing out loud and sympathizing with the students in Prelutsky's newest collection of poetry. Many poets, along with Jane Manning's illustrations, have nailed the world of school perfectly. Also, parents will remember their own school days with fond memories and teachers will have their own Why the Frog in Our Class Is Purple moments to be reminded of. — Jeanette

Description


A day at school is:
a. marvelous
b. dreadful
c. silly
d. all of the above—and much, much more!

From suspicious hot lunches (yuck!), to pop quizzes (oh, no!), to recess and best friends (hooray!), everything you love—and love to hate—about school is front and center in this collection of eighteen poems by thirteen celebrated poets. One thing's for certain: there's no place like school!
