These cute rhyming poems will not only make children smile, they are relatable too! Children are sure to see themselves in poems like, "And the answer is...?" and "Swap" (the latter is about students swapping food at lunch). These poems are great for introducing kids to poetry because the topic is something they should be very familiar with!

The book presents humorous poems about school, mostly applying to elementary grades.The book would be a good way to highlight the different forms and topics of poetry.

My 1st grade daughter's favorite is the Pledge of Allegiance poem. Teachers also love it as a gift!

My favorite poem in this book is The American Flag because in the poem, all of the children are saying the Pledge of Allegiance, but they are interrupting it.
