Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Lois Rubin Gross
This is the second book of child-selected poems that won the National Council of Teachers of English Award. The poets are the tried and the true: Myra Cohen Livingston, Eve Merriam, John Ciardi, and Lee Bennett Hopkins among them. The most contemporary poet included is Nikki Grimes, now sixty years old. In fact, a perusal of the biographical material provided at the end of the book indicates that this volume could well be called The Dead Poet's Society, for the number of writers who have passed on. These facts aside, this is a great curriculum-supportive collection. Poems are short (one page or less), accessible, and provide forms and topics that children could easily duplicate in an attempt to create their own verse. Poems include the seasonal (David McCord's "Snowman" or Karla Kuskin's "Winter Clothes"); family-related (John Ciardi's "Mummy Slept Late and Daddy Fixed Breakfast" and Mary Ann Hoberman's "Big Sister"); and a few more serious themes (Myra Cohn Livingston's "Martin Luther King," "Arthur Thinks Kennedy," and X.J. Kennedy's "Martin Luther King Day"). Read aloud, some poems seem deceptively simple in form; others are marked by intricate internal rhyme (Karla Kuskin's "Hughbert and the Glue"). Some require projection onto a screen so students can observe how type size and shape can impact the feel of the poem (Karla Kuskin, again, in "I Woke Up This Morning"). The index is arranged by author, title and first line, so finding a topical poem may be more challenging, although the titles are often self-explanatory. All in all, a satisfying collection of poems, if not an inspired one, that should pique students' interest in composing their own observational rhymes. Reviewer: Lois Rubin Gross
