First Line: “There was a naughty boy,”
Summary: This is a collection of four poems with the same subject- a “naughty” boy on his travels.
Conor: Zero Attention Given
Their Thoughts: “It’s not what I expected.” She suggests you look through the book before checking it out. She didn’t really understand the content.
My Thoughts: I disagree on the intended audience for these poems. Kids don’t talk like this, and they aren’t used to hearing people talk like this either. While it is good to expose them to new things, it is also important to hold their interest. I’d hold out on this picture book until middle school, when they are taught to evaluate their reading more critically.
FYI: This is a poetry book
Happy Reading our friends,
Mama Lala, Maggie, & Conor
