Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
The jaunty, green spotted frog on the cover of this inviting collection of simple poems is a cheerful indication of what readers will find inside. With few exceptions the poems are short (many of them three or four lines), uncomplicated and suitable for reading to preschoolers. The rhymes--by such well-known authors as Merriam, Hoban, Prelutsky, Kennedy, Lobel, McCord and Livingston--appear singly or in pairs on each spread, leaving Moore ( Songs of Summer ) plenty of room for her ebullient watercolors. A purple cow's birthday party, a friendly monster brushing his teeth with pickle paste, and a huge bunny tumbling in the winter wind are just a few of the sprightly images that adorn the text. Loosely grouped according to topic, Robinson's ( Space Probes to the Planets ; Bear and Alligator Tales ) selections focus on subjects and activities of interest to preschoolers: the weather, food, animals, sibling relations and bedtime. While the volume breaks no new ground, its peppy, optimistic tone offers much to enjoy. Ages 3-8. (Sept.)
Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
A collection of glorious poetry that young children can read on their own or have read to them. More than thirty fun-filled poems in 64 pages enhanced with bright cheerful illustrations. Children will truly enjoy reading and listening to the poetry of Arnold Lobel, Jack Prelutsky, Robert Louis Stevenson, Judith Viorst and many others. A real delight for the eyes and ears.
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2-Thirty-seven poems by well-known poets are featured in this collection. The volume includes works by Aileen Fisher, Karla Kuskin, and Jack Prelutsky, as well as a few by poets best known for their adult poetry, e.g. Gertrude Stein and Sylvia Plath. Classic poems-Gelett Burgess's ``The Purple Cow'' and A.A. Milne's ``The Furry Bear''-appear, along with more contemporary selections. The poems are loosely arranged by topic: animals, nonsense, food, weather and the seasons, and personal reflections. Moore's large, cheerful paintings feature brightly colored, personified animals and smiling children, and echo the lighthearted quality of the poems. X.J. and Dorothy Kennedy's Talking Like the Rain (Little, 1992) and Jack Prelutsky's Read-Aloud Rhymes for the Very Young (Knopf, 1986) are more comprehensive anthologies for this age group and may prove to be more useful to librarians and teachers. The strength of this volume, however, is that, like Lee Bennett Hopkins's Surprises (1984) and Karla Kuskin's Soap Soup (1992, both HarperCollins), its length, large type, and accessible format invite young children to read the poems themselves.-Barbara Chatton, College of Education, University of Wyoming, Laramie
