    Talking Like the Rain

    Great book of poems. The illustrations for the most part are well done. This book has great poems for kids 4 years old and older. Some will illict laughter, giggles and questions.

    You pick and choose themes of poetry from this book. Highly recommended just for the diversity and simplicity alone.

    Just Beautiful

    We received this book as a baby gift, and it is just beautiful. My two year old already enjoys reading poetry before bed.
