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.

Poetry at its best! Fun way to introduce children to the poets of the Harlem Renaissance and a format of poetry that many might not know about, The Golden Shovel. Yet, each poem is a beautiful read about issues some people face. Illustrations by illustrators you might recognize from their other works, some new, but all perfect additions to Grimes and others words. Give it to a poetry lover of any age, or to a new poet just exploring the different pathways of poetry. ~ Reviewed by Jeanette
