Later on, starting at 7 pm, and also in the library's downstairs meeting room, Evelyn will reprise her presentation and talk more about how poets can get taken seriously on policy matters. It is significant to me that although the imprisonment of poets for their political activities is common in the world, it is rare in the United States; poets and poetry don't get taken seriously.

It's quite a sad sonnet, because, well life stinks when you smell worse than feet. Feb 19, Kristina Befort rated it liked it Shelves: children-s-poetry. This book is filled with a lot of lyrical, nonsense poems and very vivid illustrations. The poems are really funny, and there is a wide variety of them. One poem is a recipe for the ocean, one is about a strange invention, and my personal favorite is about food disliking people in the way that some people dislike food. These poems are definitely nonsensical, but they have very good rhyming patters to them, which makes them fun and easy to read.
I think this would be a great book for first and se This book is filled with a lot of lyrical, nonsense poems and very vivid illustrations. I think this would be a great book for first and second graders, and it would be great to read out loud to them. A lot of the poems use a great deal of personification, so the kids would have to use their imagination when picturing the poems, so it really celebrates children's imaginations. This is a poetry book I would possibly use in my classroom.
I could use it for an art project or to lead into a writing project. Other than that, the book does not have a lot of educational aspects to it, other than it being a fun way to teach about poetry.

It was fun to read because the author used lots of rhyming words to create silly poems about things to which kids could relate such as only liking one kind of food. It could be used to show children that even though everyone has their own likes and dislikes, it is ok to be unique. It might also be a good way to introduce a lesson on nutrition and healthy eating for older children.
Mar 13, I8it rated it it was amazing. I thought this book was hilarious. But there were also poems in it that were maybe not as yucking-it-up hardy-har funny but more contemplative, like Recipe and Monday that were nice to read and think about. And the pictures were punchy and not too cluttered and weird in a really good way. Super tasty fixins overall! Jan 30, Jennifer rated it it was ok.
