About the Author
Fox is the co-creator of the Confetti Company books (with recordings narrated by actor Robert Guillaume). The multicultural series inspired the HBO special, Happy Ever After: Fairy Tales for Every Child.
As a writer of children's songs ("Big Horned Sheep," "I'm an Elephant"), it was natural to move into poetry. Fox loves to play with words and never takes anything-including himself-too seriously. His style ranges from innocent to edgy, heartwarming to hilarious. He can give a lesson without a lecture, make kids feel smarter, and make the world a friendlier place.
Most Helpful Customer Reviews
“It’s Weird to Grow a Beard” is full of a variety of funny poems about all kinds of things! From growing a weird beard, to a sandwich miles high, to a cat who swallowed a frog, this book has one silly poem after the next! I enjoyed the poems in this book. The poems were very funny and unique! The book had a lot of illustrations too. The illustrations were also funny and went really well with the poems! I think any kid would enjoy the poems in the book. There’s one word in the book that parents may object too (it starts with c and rhymes with happy), but I also know that some families/cultures don’t think that word is impolite. The poems are fun, and the rhymes flow well and I LOVE the silliness! I think silly poems are a great way of getting kids into reading poetry and the poems in this book are right for that! **NOTE I got a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
