One was a black belt.
One was a brown.
One had a loose belt;
His pants fell down.

In this entertaining poetry book, Douglas Florian pairs rhymes with simple black-and-white illustrations on subjects ranging from siblings, fishermen, April Fool's Day, homework, camels, the dangers of drinking ink, and much, much more.

With poems that are simple enough for beginning readers, and large drawings that would be great for coloring, LAUGH-ETERIA would be a fun gift for any creative child.

As an added bonus, some poems are a little gross and creepy, such as "Brain Drain" and "Monster Meatballs," which is sure to make reluctant readers want to pick it up!
