The earth is built from the “ground up” in haikus. Each one is artistic but factual. Almost every aspect of Earth from core to the surface is covered. The slightly abstract, but also realistic illustrations, fit the theme perfectly. There are little codes at the bottom of the page that corresponded with a fact page at the end. ~ Reviewed by Jeanette

From the field to the stable and from riding to rest, Michael Rosen captures what it is to be a horse in haiku poetry. There are three sections each marked by a heading or title to the following haiku. Each one talks about horses, what it does and the surrounding areas. The poems are formatted to make the story flow. These prose poems complete this horse tale. ~ Reviewed by Jeanette

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! ~ Reviewed by Jeanette

Sickly, feverish, and bed-ridden, Stevenson shifted and shaped his memories and dreams into verses fresh, unaffected, and overflowing with childlike joy. ~ Reviewed by Mike Hare

Does your child like reading poetry? Do you or your child have a quirky sense of humor? Do you wonder if nothing is impossible? If you have answered yes to at least one of these questions, then this is the book for you! Even your non-poetry reader will get a kick out of Harris and Smiths delightfully puny, informative and just out-and-out silly poems and wacky illustrations. Readers will see hints of classic and contemporary influences. Hidden gems and sly twists will make this a repeated want-to-read and maybe inspire a few budding poets, too! ~ Reviewed by Jeanette

The nonsense book was indispensable reading in my family growing up. We all recited The Owl and the Pussycat and the Jumblies and of course as many limericks as we could recall. This beautifully bound volume is peppered with Lear's original illustrations. Makes an unexpected baby shower gift for the home library.

Or get down to the bookstore post haste
