    This book would definitely make a great gift...

    Books are a great gift for young readers. Reading to children improves reading skills and cultivates a love of reading. Children who read, often grow up to do better at what they do. Most kids have too much television in their lives. Television is not a good substitute for reading. It's important to stimulate, not stifle a child's imagination!<p> I had a great time reading, ¿Recess Rhymes,¿ by Sharon Johnson. The poems are not too long and are well written, perfect for a child¿s attention span. There are so many good poems, it¿s difficult to pick a favorite. Several of the many poems I enjoyed are: ¿Yellow Teeth,¿ ¿Friendships,¿ ¿Front Door,¿ and ¿My Room.¿<p> The author¿s sense of humor is brilliantly reflected in her book. A number of the poems were written similar to the ¿nutty¿ style used in Asher Jones¿ book ¿Piranhas in the Tub.¿<p> The book itself is large in size (height and width). The poems are printed in a large font, which I think is also a real plus. Wayne Washington, the author¿s son, did a great job illustrating the book. His drawings add so much more to the fun of reading the poems.<p> This book would definitely make a great gift. The back cover reads: ¿WARNING: Once you start to read this book you won¿t be able to put it down. For kids who have said, `I have nothing to do or I¿m bored¿ THIS BOOK IS FOR YOU!¿ Why not spend constructive time with your children reading a worthwhile book? After reading ¿Recess Rhymes,¿ ask your kids what poems are their favorites.<p> I will donate my copy to the school I attended, Donaldson Elementary in Tucson, Arizona, to share the fun of ¿Recess Rhymes¿ with others.<p> As an author of children's books, I highly recommend ¿Recess Rhymes¿ for young readers.
