Staff Reviews

Did you hear what I heard? There is a new poetry book! Kay Winters and Patrice Barton have created a book of poems that will take you through the school day and year. From getting on the bus (what will mother do without us all day?) to how much one child loves her numbers (she really does), to an earthworm telling a tale (or two), right up to the hundredth day and beyond to the end of the year each poem includes facts, fun and the fantastic of school. Colorfully detailed illustrations accent accessible text for all ages. There is something for everyone! — Jeanette


A joyful, poetic celebration of kindergarten and first grade

Poet Kay Winters has written a book of zippy poems centering on the triumphs and trials of those first school years. This cheery collection covers an astonishing range of activities from the anticipated--dashing to the bus and science class discoveries--to the completely unexpected--losing a permission slip and seeing a teacher outside the classroom. Patrice Barton's sweetly smudgy watercolor illustrations show a wonderfully diverse class of young students, making this an ideal selection for every collection.
