Book Review:

This book is a collection of short poems that have short lines and are sure to connect with young readers. There’s a poem about climbing a tree, a poem about licking a fence, and so much more! This book has something for everyone and is sure to start some fun and silly conversations among the readers.


Readers who enjoy this small collection of poems are sure to love the Shel Silverstein books as well. A list of which can be found here.

This is a great video of a little girl reciting the poem and including her own actions. This could be a great activity for any class reading this book!
