poetry for children

Very much of the 'nonsense' genre - some great fun, some slightly more edgy.
A poem with a particular critism of his younger sister could make for uncomfortable reading for any child in similar circumstances, or be used as a taunt, as it is pretty 'in your face'. But if taken in the spirit of 'nonsense poems' in general there is much to amuse

Good condition

I started reading some poems to my kids over the summer, we found Shel Silverman, to really have a way of mixing poetry with humor. Now the kids each have a copy for them selves to share with others. A must read!

Kids will always love Shel Silverstein generation after generation.

A Great Book to Read to Your Kids

My daughter and I are reading this now and enjoying it very much. It roughly compares to Dr. Seuss in that it stands separate from the vast majority of children's books in that you can read it as an adult and enjoy it too.
