9780060823382: There's No Place Like School: Classroom Poems

A day at school is:
a. marvelous
b. dreadful
c. silly
d. all of the above—and much, much more!

From suspicious hot lunches (yuck!), to pop quizzes (oh, no!), to recess and best friends (hooray!), everything you love—and love to hate—about school is front and center in this collection of eighteen poems by thirteen celebrated poets. One thing's for certain: there's no place like school!

About the Author:

Jack Prelutsky is the best-selling author of more than fifty books of poetry, including The New Kid on the Block, illustrated by James Stevenson, and Stardines Swim High Across the Sky, illustrated by Carin Berger. Jack Prelutsky lives in Washington State.



Jane Manning is the illustrator of dozens of children's books, including the I Can Read! Books Baa-Choo! by Sarah Weeks and the New York Times bestselling The Witch Who Was Afraid of Witches by Alice Low. She currently lives in Deep River, Connecticut.

From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 3 This collection of 18 short and funny poems by 13 different writers covers topics like riding the bus (Sixteen boys /fourteen girls /Thirty pairs of sleepy eyes) to the struggles of learning cursive (Who decides?/Who gets to choose?/Who dreams up these curlicues?), all dear to the hearts of their intended audience. Prelutsky's Grasshopper Gumbo lists the offerings in the school cafeteria: Grasshopper Gumbo/Iguana Tail Tarts/Toad La Mode/Pickled Pelican Parts.... Manning's watercolors add colorful splashes of humor her round-faced children are comical and cute. While this book has a lot in its favor, it's unfortunately an addition to an already crowded field of light verse about school. Libraries that have Carol Diggory Shields's Lunch Money (Dutton, 1995) or Prelutsky's What a Day It Was at School! (HarperCollins, 2006) might want to consider this title as a fun but nonessential purchase. Lauralyn Persson, Wilmette Public Library, IL
