These short rhymes site the grand delight each character takes in their great and myriad joys. A great way to encourage young minds to pursue their passion in life. Even for an adult the inspiration and cheer is welcome.
I purchased this for my 2 year old granddaughter. This is a true delight! Limericks and other short poetry, just right for reading aloud. My granddaughter is already reciting some of them, and can finish many other phrases as we read together. This book is a great gift for a little one!
The cover of this book declares this "A book of nonsense," and indeed it is; fun and imaginative nonsense to be sure and a pure delight when reading it to children.
This is filled with little nonsense rhymes dealing with owls and rather chunky pigs. If you read these little poems correctly (Which require little effort as the author and illustrator has already set the mood for you, you will get a lot of giggling going on coming from the child or group of children you are reading to you.
In addition to very clever little poems, you have some wonderful and detailed illustrations by Adrianne Libel, a very, very good illustrator. The pictures alone in this little book will allow a child's imagination to fly here and there in a delightful way. The illustrations are not only funny, but could also be classified as quite "cute," a term I hate but cannot think of a better one at this time.
These stories, along with almost 30 other books written and illustrated by Arnold Lobel were based on stories he told his daughter Adrianne as she grew up. This book and the others are true treasures.
This book was cute, nonsensical rhymes, which I love, but it's one I would not be excited to read over and over and over and over again, as kids so often would like. There are much better books for kids (in my opinion) that I'd prefer spending the precious time reading.
