    " It was okay, but I would have rathered it if there weren't as many nonsense poems...I mean, imagination is good in a child, but almost every single poem was completely fantasy. And reading them as an adult is not very enjoyable. lol "

    " I have a copy of this book & I love it. I don't really know when I read it, but it would have to have been sometime in the 1960s. I probably wouldn't have given this a 5 now, but I still enjoyed it. "

    " I decided to introduce poetry to my kids with my favorite book of poems. They liked my favorite, "Bed in Summer," but decided their favorite (of those we've read so far) is "Looking Forward." It gave us all a good laugh. "
