This book of poems is a joy to read aloud with your child to teach them the rhythms of speech and the fun of poetry. My shy 11 year old daughter caught on quickly and was soon enjoying the pattern and interplay of the phrases.
If you enjoy nature and poetry and sharing these with someone else, you will love this book!
