In this engaging poetry collection, popular children's book illustrator Tomie dePaola succeeds again in creating cheerful, rib-tickling animal characters, from the renegade reptile in Eve Merriam's "Alligator in the Escalator" to the cavorting cats in T. S. Eliot's "The Song of the Jellicles." This thoughtful selection of 86 poems--in a spacious, oversized format-- includes well-known works from William Blake, Emily Dickinson, Langston Hughes, and Frederico Garcia Lorca, with a sprinkling of haiku for good measure. Many youngsters are drawn to the simplicity of dePaola's art, which includes pictures of children of all races at home and at play. A great beginning poetry book. (Ages 4 to 8)

A classicReviewed in the United States 🇺🇸 on 27 October 2012
This book was one of my children's favorites when they were young. Now I give it as a baby present. It is full of poems that can be enjoyed at any age. I started reading this poms to my children when they were a few weeks old and we continued reading them for years. Hearing the rhymes and various word sounds supports children's literacy and numeracy skills. The illustrations are bright and colorful and add to the experience.

Great poetry bookReviewed in the United States 🇺🇸 on 7 July 2017
This is the best book of poetry for children I have ever seen. I have given it as a gift many times. Too bad it's out of print.
