the wonder book

Summary:
Original poems (like Typical Day), fun illustrations (like the Periodic Chart of Table Manners); and remakes of classics – like This Little Piggy – celebrate and imagine the world through the eyes of a child. This poetry collection goes beyond the expected rhymes that usually fill children’s books of poems.
Educational Themes:
Enjoy reading this at home; have fun at school with a poetry unit. Given the word-play – both double entendre and also re-purposed words – you can have fun with language, too. With upper elementary and middle school students, work with the illustrations to explore art.
Reading Level:
0.0
Recommended Age To Read By Yourself:
6 to 9
Recommended Age To Read Together:
4 to 6
Purchase Recommendation:
Buy. Like Shel Silverstein books, The Wonder Book is one that you and your kids will return to time and time again.
Little Kid Reaction
Review pending.
Big Kid Reaction
The simplicity is elegant. The poems are fun, not just for kids. The wordplay is clever and the pen-and-ink illustrations add to the fun. There is a poem (or two or three) for everyone.
Pros:

When you read The Wonder Book, plan to giggle, guffaw and share some hugs! Let the kids take the lead and pick the poems / illustrations they want to share.

Cons:

None.
