A Pizza The Size Of The Sun

Summary:

Circles and triangles; short stanzas and long; words you are familiar with and some that are much too long (Fummawummalummazumms!). More than 100 poems cover topics from food to pets to school and avoiding chores. 


Independent Reader (10):
Our preteen is balking at reading but still loves poetry. She likes being able to open the book to any page and decide what to read. The cool thing is that we get to hear all the poems that are hits because we hear "listen to this."

Parent Perspective:
We didn't rely solely on our 10-year-old in reading A Pizza the Size of the Sun. We are huge Jack Prelutsky fans - his poetry speaks with a voice that resonates but also echoes his target audience.

Absolutely none.
