Foxworthy's Contemporary Children's Poetry a Worthy Read!
I always viewed the characters in my own childhood poems a little suspiciously. Why on earth would the town crier run up and down the stairs in his nightgown? A little scandalous if you asked me! And why would anyone want to eat "curds and whey," especially on a tuffet?<BR/><BR/>Finally, none other than Jeff Foxworthy, who has long tickled our collective fancy, has applied his talents and produced cute, clever and contemporary children's verse such as "Uninvited Guests" about squirrels on the bird feeder. The ups and downs of cousin slumber parties, the chagrin over a near-sighted grandma applying lipstick, and the eccentricities of cousins, aunts and uncles are examined with affection in others. Many revel in the wonders of nature, as does "Missing," about the tadpole who is mysteriously replaced by a frog! Others, like "Bumblebee Breakfast," (Bumblebees like doughnut trees...) simply delight the imagination. <BR/><BR/>My favorite, however, remains the title verse announcing with abandon, "There's dirt on my shirt and leaves in my hair. There's mud on my boots but I don't care!"<BR/><BR/>What fun to read this to any child, even the child in yourself!
