Poetry Friday is hosted today by Sheri Doyle.
For Poetry Friday -- "Be glad your nose is on your face and other poems: some of the best of Jack Prelutsky" with illustrations by Brandon Dorman.
If you were going to have only one book by America's first Children's Poet Laureate this probably should be the one. Prelutsky has collected over one hundred of his favorite poems from his other works and then generously added fifteen new verses written expressly for this volume. In addition, he's included activities to enhance the experience of reading and sharing his work.
As always there is a wealth of clever wordplay and humor to be found in his poems with unexpected endings that will send readers back for a second, closer look at a verse that has surprised them.
