I bought this hoping it would be like Shel Silverstein. I was so very disappointed. While it visually mimicked his style, the poems were not even close. I suppose this is the equivalent of every single person who tries to sing like Whitney Houston and just falls short- I just didn’t enjoy it.
Too many of the ones relied on dying or falling as the punchline... and as much as I believe we should encourage kids to be healthy, I felt “Kaboom” might be inappropriate for any child whose loved one died from obesity or for any child who is, themselves, heavier.
