Listener Opinions

    " This book of poems has about a hundred poems written in different styles. One of my favorites is called I am on a Bumpy Road. All of the poems in this book are very playful and silly. My favorite one is Call of the Winded Owl on page 57. This one is not a poem at all, and without it's illustrations it wouldn't even be funny, and in my opinion that's what makes it great. "

    " Its a very cute book of poetry for kids, very concise, short and cute. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Miriam | 1/26/2014

    " I picked this up out of curiousity when I saw it in a library display, sat down at a table, and read the entire thing on the spot. There is something Shel Silverstienesque about several of the poems, but overall, I liked him better. I liked his vocabulary--he isn't afraid to use big words, some of which may not even be familiar to some adults. I remember being fascinated by words when I was a child, and I think it is great to have poems where beautiful words are used no matter how many syllables they have. I actually laughed out loud in a few places, and I could imagine my 4- and 6-year-old nephews laughing too. "

    " My son who is 4, almost 5, loved this book. It was on his reading list for his summer book group, kids mostly 1st to 3rd grade. It reminded me alot of the Shel Silverstein poetry books I read growing up in the 70's and 80's. They were humorous poems for kids and funny for adults, too. I would call this a new Shel Silverstein style book. It is new this year and won the Poetry Foundation's Children's Poet Laureate. My son's favorite poem is "The Blue-Bean-Bonking Bupple." "

    " We will re-read this in a couple of years....My six year old didn't quite get it. I had to explain most of the plays on words which killed the fun of it. "

    " Move over Shel Silverstein, here comes Jack Prelutsky "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sam | 12/28/2013

    " I read the poem. Underwater Marching Band. Prelutsky uses many vocabulary words that would be easy to teach in the classroom. This particular poem emphasizes the use of un- words. I did like the poem, and I think it can be used as an introduction into a underwater unit, but I wasn't a huge fan of the rhyme scheme, I felt like it was very awkward. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Amy Brown | 12/22/2013

    " Another collection of poetry by Jack Prelutsky in the style of his Pizza the Size of the Sun and The New Kid on the Block. Illustrations by James Stevenson. "

    " Poetry: Published: 2008 I like this book of poetry for kids. I think it was easy to read and showed different types of poetry that kids could easily use as template for their own poetry. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Audrey | 12/5/2013

    " May - This is a cute poem about a dog being a gardener and planting his bones. I haven't read much of his poetry, but I would love to read more after reading this one poem. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rob James | 11/13/2013

    " My son, age 4, and I are truly enjoying this book of poetry for children. My 14-year-old even enjoys reading the poems aloud for the 4-year-old. For fans of light-hearted verse, I highly recommend this book. "

    " MSBA nominee 2009-2010.

    Even if I wasn't dealing with doggie depression right now, I would probably still be kind of "eh" on this book. Normally I like poetry, but I just wasn't took taken with Prelutsky's. I wonder if I would still like Shel Silverstein as much now. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Logo | 6/15/2009

    " I LOVE Jack Prelutsky.
    My kids had a whole conversation about whether or not he is as good as Shel Silverstein. We reached no steadfast conclusion but enjoy them both a great deal.
    If you are a Seuss and Silverstein fan you should definitely check out Jack Prelutsky.
