Taken from the inside jacket - “No one will ever forget Ewe” on Ohio Sheep Day (July 14). No mata mata how hard we try on World Turtle Day (May 23). These two holidays are just a taste of the wild and wacky – and real – holidays you should be celebrating.” Why I liked this book – When I first heard about this book, I thought I would really love it… And I DID!!! This was an awesome book! The poems are top-notch, and the illustrations are awesome too! I love everything about it especially that the wacky poems are based on REAL holidays! This is a great way to celebrate National Poetry Month! J. Patrick Lewis is an AWESOME poet! And the fact that he’s Poet Laureate is even better! I also like that the rats show up on all the pages in the book no matter what the holiday is. I think all kids and adults will LOVE this book!**NOTE I reviewed my own copy of this book.
