These are great poems! Like legit. I’m shocked by how much “chilren’s poetry” I don’t like. But these poems are good. A variety of lengths. A variety of rhyme schemes. I really like reading them aloud.
They are all from the point of view of 4 dogs, either Buddy, Rosalie, Fizz or Barkley. And for my pet loving 3yo they are THE BEST.
The format of the “book” is more like a magazine, so it probably won’t last forever, which is too bad since my daughter gets a kick out of me reading these poems with her. But because it’s not a heavy or bulky book it really can come with us anywhere.
Plenty of different poetry styles, plenty of dogs being doggish, plenty of playful humans, plenty of darling illustrations -- this book delivery 12 months of doggy goodness, and goodness knows there's always room for more poetry in my house. For fun, why not ask your kids to try something similar -- write different styles of poems on a single theme throughout the year.
Thanks for this excellent book, Marilyn Singer and Miki Sakamoto.
