Children's LiteratureI bet you have never given much thought to the items in your kitchen as far as them talking. Mozelle sets us straight and provides a couple of poems that are real gems. Among my favorites are "Toaster"—"Jack-in-the box/For bread/Includes a tan" and "Refrigerator"—"My door/Opens/Closes/Opens/Closes/Opens/Closes/You know the routine./Still,/As a Rule/I keep my cool." Now you get the idea and the illustrations that go along with the poems are equally as amusing. Generally the poems are quite short, but they truly sum up each of the objects one would find in most kitchens. These poems would be good choices for younger kids because they are easy to memorize, but also food for thought for older students who might be challenged to come up with their own poems about the kitchen and its contents. 2006, Henry Holt, Ages 4 to 10.
