9780192761736: Seaside Poems

Nothing's better than a sunny day at the beach, and this anthology of ## poems about playing in the sand and crashing through the waves captures everything that's fun about going to the beach. From sandy picnics ("ham with sand, bread with sand, and cake with sand") to starfish "limbed with flames," the poems in this colorful collection are perfect for young readers. Rocks

Big rocks into pebbles,
pebbles into sand.
I really hold a million million rocks here in my hand.
--Florence Parry Heide

Rain Coming

When a mermaid winks
Look for a shower
Children at the seashore
Splashing by the hour
See rain coming
Soaked as they can get
Cry, "Quick!
Duck under
So you don't get wet!"
--Ashley Bryan

About the Author:


Jill Bennett and Nick Sharratt have already compiled for Oxford the successful Noisy Poems and Tasty Poems.

Review:


"A small, jolly collection of beach verses by contemporary writers. It is just the right size and shape to stick in a beach bag and flip through after lunch when the sand is too hot to play on."--The New York Times Book Review


"Twelve poems... all of which read aloud well. They deftly depict childlike experiences at the beach... Created in bright, cheerful turquoises, yellows, and oranges, the cartoonlike illustrations adeptly capture the atmosphere... A useful collection to own."--School Library Journal


"Starts with a perky verse about flip-flops on the beach, and follows with the exuberant "Goodness gracious!", which will be a winner with all children. Most of the remaining poems all merit reading and rereading... This is bound to be a popular edition to the poetry collection. Highly Recommended."--Library Talk
