Bruce Lansky has edited a number of poetry anthologies (including Rolling in the Aisles, Kids Pick the Funniest Poems, If Kids Ruled the School, A Bad Case of the Giggles, Miles of Smiles, and No More Homework! No More Tests!), and 3 silly songbook anthologies. Lansky created the popular GigglePoetry.com website for children and the PoetryTeachers.com website for teachers. He also created the Girls to the Rescue series, the New Fangled Fairy Tales series, and the Can You Solve the Mysteries series.From School Library Journal:
PreS?In this bedtime collection, Lansky includes original poems and traditional rhymes and songs with new words. For example, "Brahms' Lullaby" becomes "I will sing you a song./ Close your eyes now and listen"; the verses of "Skidamarink" have been changed and multiplied?"I love you in the morning./ I love you late at night./I love you when it's bedtime,/and when we kiss good-night." Aside from the fact that many of the poems and songs are more appealing in their original form, this book is a pleasant one, with lovely, peaceful, dreamlike illustrations in pinks, blues, and lavenders, full of multicultural children going to bed in cozy rooms underneath starry skies. Parents may be happy with this collection, but could also find the original poems and lullabies intact and well illustrated in books such as Kay Chorao's Baby's Bedtime Book (Dutton, 1984), Michael Hague's Sleep, Baby, Sleep (Morrow, 1994), and Jane Yolen's Lullaby Songbook (Harcourt, 1986).?Judith Constantinides, East Baton Rouge Parish Main Library, LA
