-- Table of Poems from Poem Finder®

From School Library Journal:

Grade 1-5-- So everyone can't do light verse like Shel Silverstein. Or even Jack Prelutsky. At least they can try. McNaughton tries hard and his heart is in the right place--with grubby little kids. He understands their preoccupation with eating and being eaten, with smelly babies, with being small and at the mercy of boring, unfair adults, "If I were a bird/ My wings I would spread,/I'd swoop over you/ And plop on your head!" accompanies a picture of a small boy grimly led by a large, cross father. As the author himself says: "I'd love to write nice poetry;/ I'd like to be serious once in a while./ But I yam what I yam--I'm juvenile!/ It must be the devil in me." Some of the poems are too long; others are eminently forgettable. On the other hand, eight-year-old kids don't care if all the lines scan or not, and they'll like McNaughton's colorful illustrations, done in the same broad humor as the verses they accompany. --Ann Stell, The Smithtown Library, NY
