Overview

Zigzag sandwiches zigzag lunch zigzag bananas in a zigzag bunch

Zigga zagga zigga zagga zeet kids love zomething good to eat!

Celebrated word whiz Loris Lesynski is back with a poetry collection for her youngest fans. After hundreds of school visits, Loris Lesynski knows that kindergarten kids have their own kind of wit. Too old for nursery rhymes and too young for irony, kindergarteners crave a pure silliness that Zigzag supplies by the zillions!

Bursting with zaniness, these poems focus on the pleasure of sound and the rhythm of language, and each contains an inherent invitation to join in. Catchy rhymes like "Anything's a Drum Drum" and "TEE HEE HEE" prove that "knees can be a drum drum/both of them a fun drum" and encourage readers and listeners to "sing and shout/ time to let the noises OUT." With rhymes about subjects as simple and familiar as school, food and even walking, Zigzag demonstrates how much fun poetry, and everyday life, can be.

Editorial Reviews

Canadian Children's Book News
Words are chosen carefully for their music as well as their meaning...color and humor bring the kindergarten experience to life.
— Brenda Halliday
Booklist
Great for reading aloud... cheerful watercolor, pencil, and gouache art, with a touch of cartoonlike humor, adds to the appeal.
— Hazel Rochman
Booklist - Hazel Rochman
Great for reading aloud... the cheerful watercolor, pencil, and gouache art, with a touch of cartoonlike humor, adds to the appeal with images of kids jumping to the "zigga zagga beat."
Canadian Children's Book News - Brenda Halliday
Words pop off the page. [Lesynski's] words are chosen carefully for their music as well as their meaning, to allow the many ESL students entering kindergarten to enjoy the poetry and to clean context from the sound rather than the meaning of the words themselves... Her trademark color and humor bring the kindergarten experience to life.
Children's Literature
All the way from "Kindergarten Rocks" to "Kindergarten Raps" this book of poetry is delightful. The poems are both silly and instructive. It includes zany lessons on things like good manners and looking before crossing the street. A joy to the ears, Lesynski has a blast playing with language, she incorporates rhythm, rhyme, repetition, alliteration, and assonance. The language is simple enough for early readers to work out in small doses. The illustrations are bright and cheerful. They show children acting out the lyrics encouraging them to move their bodies to the poems—dancing, clapping, and even cutting. Reading this book is a full body experience and a tribute to all five senses. This book would make a fantastic gift for a child getting ready to enter kindergarten and would be a terrific addition to any kindergarten classroom. However, all of the poems are not about kindergarten, so pre-school kids might enjoy them as well. 2004, Annick Press, Ages 4 to 6.
