5.0 out of 5 stars Be Glad This Book Is on Your Shelf 3 July 2016
By HechoEnColorado - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I purchased this book for a friend's child several years ago, and it has always been one of her favorites. I was excited to get a copy for my own child! My baby is only 3.5 months old, but I read this book to her aloud frequently. Studies show that the more words children hear, the smarter they are (and no, tv and radio don't count), so reading is paramount for developing your child's brain. Prelutsky has a masterful command of the English language, and many of the poems have clever word play and double entendres. The illustrations (which I presume are what is keeping my baby interested at this stage), are lush and colorful and layered with incredible detail. This book is a must for any child's library.
4.0 out of 5 stars So Great...Except... 23 Feb. 2017
By Christina - Published on Amazon.com

I love MOST of these poems. Most are wholesome and just fun. Except some about goblins, dragons, trolls and monsters and eating nasty stuff. Oh how I wish these had not been included! I read this book to my 1, 3 and 5 year old, but I don't leave it where they can flip through it themselves because some of the pictures and poems are disturbing. With that said, I LOVE almost all the rest of the book. These poems are fun to read aloud and the rest of it is so good. It's a shame because if it weren't for those scary/gruesome ones it would be an awesome baby shower gift!
5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic compilation and great memory training 14 Mar. 2013

Already fans of Prelutsky, we found this in our library and had to get one for ourselves, A wonderful collection of beautifully illustrated poems collected from many of his earlier books. Additionally this book comes with a CD of 25 or so poems that are perfect for playing in the car. Read by the author, most are set to music making them wonderfully (or woefully depending on whether you are a child or parent) memorable. No problem for a 4 year old to be able to recite a few of these substantial poems on his own within a few weeks of playing this in the car while running errands. Not just fun for little kids but still interesting for older siblings and parents. No need to mention to your kids that their vocabulary is expanding boundlessly as they sing about rats for lunch and gloopy glopers.
5.0 out of 5 stars Encourages children's love of reading! 17 Oct. 2016

This immensely appealing poetry collection was beloved by my own children, contributing to their mastery of language and love of reading. I bought it as a gift, once again, for expectant parents, along with other children's literature.
3.0 out of 5 stars Not what I thought 21 Aug. 2014
By VP - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
We love Mr. Prelutsky's poems. I am giving 3 stars because these poems are more about scary and gross things. I had thought that they would be funny or humorous poems. I did take a look inside this book before buying. But the poems I got to see were not that way. My child read only very few poems and then told me that she wants 'normal' Jack Prelutsky poems!
