What I Like!: Poems for the Very Youngby Gervase Phinn, Jane Eccles
This entertaining volume of verse for the very young is the perfect introduction to poetry. It includes poems about everything that is important to children: animals, family, food - and some very good jokes. Jane Eccles' humorous and wacky illustrations perfectly complement this lively and amusing collection.
The Lucky Four-Leaf Clover made my reviewer giggle. When bending down to pick clover, father is butted by a goat and ends up falling flat on his face.
Little Miss Mabel drew the response, ‘The picture of the snake who swallowed her plate is funny, and I like it because the boy is watching at the door.’ I hadn’t particularly noticed the boy, but now saw him clasping his hand over his mouth as he beholds the strangest of sights. I observed my reviewer taking a few seconds to study the picture for the inappropriately-named poem One to Ten. ‘The person who did the pictures actually counted the number of foxes – there are 34 of them – look, 34 foxes in a den.’
