School Library Journal

K-Gr 3-Although the rhythm is sometimes slightly off, the content of these poems is right on target for beginning readers, hitting the funny bones of young children. Rat has 18 poems based on school experiences-the cafeteria, homework, class picture, and the like. Grasshopper Pie consists of five silly poems including one that tells the perils of being near a sneezing elephant. The rhyming words will help emerging readers in decoding, as will the colorful illustrations. Children may need help with words such as "frightening," "photographer," and "caught," but on the whole they will be able to master the books and share them with their classmates. Fun additions to easy-reader collections.-Anne Knickerbocker, formerly at Cedar Brook Elementary School, Houston, TX Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
