Great Poetry for Boys,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: My Hippo Has the Hiccups (Hardcover)
This great book of peoms from witty rhymster, Kenn Nesbitt, is a worthwhile addition to any shelf of poetry books for children, especially for ages 8 and up. This writer has become very popular with my son's year at school (Year 4), particularly with the boys. His verses are rhythmic and amusing, with some great punch lines, but can also be thought-provoking and form the basis of interesting discussions. Beacuse the poet is from the U.S., his well-scanned rhymes don't always work in received pronunciation English and obviously there are American items of vocabulary and spellings; but again all thses factors can make interesting topics to discuss with children. The CD not only has many of the poems read by the author, but includes some poetry wriing tips. My 9-year-old says this book is "joyful, delightful and interesting. The CD was fascinating". It has inspired him to write more poetry himself and has really made him giggle.
