    1. This book is delightful It s classified as poetry For me personally, a poem is a piece of writing that, firstly has, a structure that sets it apart from ordinary prose, it has a rhyme and rhythm to it Secondly, it takes words and uses them in a unique way to make a person see something in a way they wouldn t have seen it in prose If you compare the pieces in this books with the my first requirement they aren t poems If you compare them with my second they absolutely are I don t read much poetry [...]

    2. Judging from the other reviews on here, this is clearly an unpopular book At least with other homeschooling parents using it as part of their curriculum Once I had adjusted to James Stevenson s sense of whimsy and his style where the text, style and pictures are inseparable in order to get his point I quite enjoyed the collection.For example the poem Larry s The illustration is of Larry s Car Yard where all the cars are now covered with last night s snowfall and look like strange white creatures [...]

    3. lol, so we read this book because we are reading all the Sonlight curriculum books We love poems, but this book wasn t really poems at all It was a collection of the author s random thoughts as he went about his day And a lot of them were extremely random and odd This book isn t really a good choice for a poetry book, but we didn t hate it We found it funny because of how random it was If you want poetry pick something else, but if you want some guy s random commentary on everything he sees whi [...]

    4. We HATED this book We love poems and we were excited to read the poetry that was included in our curriculum but now we want our time back Next time I go through this curriculum with the younger kids we are NOT using this book There are so many better poetry books out there Jack Prelutsky

    5. This is one of the oddest poetry books I ve ever seen I put poetry in quotes because it only loosely classifies as such, imo The poems are bizzare, do not contain any aesthetic and rhythmic qualities, and make little to no sense at all We ve tried to give it a shot, but it s not worth our time We re switching to a different book of poetry.

    6. We liked these random different poems They re about funny things you wouldn t think to write a poem about.

    7. Not my idea of a poem book We have only stuck with it because it has turned into a running joke how weird the poems are.
