You know from the title, this will be a fun read, but what will surprise (and delight) parents, is the whole family will love it. There are plenty of facts and history woven into verse here, but a lot of laughing, sighing, imagining, and sharing-just what you hope a great book for kids will provide. Stuck Toast is a way more than a book of poetry for kids-it's a gift of how words can be woven to amaze!
Love, love this charming book which is appropriate for all ages. This is the type of poetry parents can read with their kids and everyone can UNDERSTAN! Funny poems, descriptive poems, visual and delightful in all respects. Great for gift-giving.
