My daughter admired this book and got it as a Christmas gift. She is in 4th grade and I flipped through the book to see what the selection of poems were used. The author/editor made a good choice using topics kids would find interesting: Nature, food, Seasons etc. The poems were uplifting and light hearted. Very user friendly.
The books' pages can be ripped out poem by poem for kids to share, put them into their pockets etc. My daughter has no plans to rip the book.
Overall, it was an interesting find and nice way to introduce poetry outside of school.
