Children's LiteratureThis anthology of poetry by different poets has something for the entire family. Some of the poems are humorous, while others are more serious. The poems describe realistic situations that make the reader smile. Coupled with gentle watercolor illustrations, the poems will entertain moms, dads, sisters, and even grandparents because the topics of the poems are about families and what they do. The illustrations are detailed enough to keep a young child interested, while the poems are short enough for the younger child's attention span. The large type and inclusion of lyrics from some children's songs makes this collection appealing to the preschool child. This is a lovely book to share with a preschooler snuggled in the reader's lap. 2001, Penguin Putnam Books for Young Readers, Ages 2 to 6.
