"Following his Newbery Medal-winning Joyful Noise, Fleischman offers another collection of beautifully orchestrated, spirited poems for many voices." — Booklist

These rousing, rib-tickling poems demand the joy of reading aloud. Settle back and chant "The Quiet Evenings Here," as Grandma rocks, the clock tick-tocks, and no one cares a hoot for the world outside. Delight in "Seventh-Grade Soap Opera," alive with hearsay about who’s holding hands with whom. This innovative book weaves a tapestry of rhythm that will have readers of all ages sounding off.

4 voice poems for performance. They are fun and engaging poems that kids can relate to. Great for use in the classroom for inspiration for creating their own poems and performing poetry for an audience.
