School Library JournalK-Gr 2
Brisk, snappy rhymes, many revolving around the school year, are full of the kind of silly humor that primary graders enjoy. Action-packed cartoon-style acrylic and pastel illustrations are rich in detail and brimming with good cheer. Short, simple rhyming phrases and lots of repetition make this a suitable choice for newly independent readers. While not as original or as inviting to share aloud as Lee Bennett Hopkins's Questions (HarperCollins, 1994; o.p.) or Faye Robinson's A Frog Inside My Hat: A First Book of Poems (Troll, 2003), the high-energy selections and lively drawings might find a place in large collections.
