in a zigzag bunch
kids love zomething
good to eat!
Celebrated word whiz Loris Lesynski is back with a poetry collection for her youngest fans. After hundreds of school visits, Loris Lesynski knows that kindergarten kids have their own kind of wit. Too old for nursery rhymes and too young for irony, kindergarteners crave a pure silliness that Zigzag supplies by the zillions!
Bursting with zaniness, these poems focus on the pleasure of sound and the rhythm of language, and each contains an inherent invitation to join in. Catchy rhymes like "Anything's a Drum Drum" and "TEE HEE HEE" prove that "knees can be a drum drum/both of them a fun drum" and encourage readers and listeners to "sing and shout/ time to let the noises OUT." With rhymes about subjects as simple and familiar as school, food and even walking, Zigzag demonstrates how much fun poetry, and everyday life, can be.

zero is nothing
zero is none
zero's not any
zero's no fun
a zillion is oodles
a zillion's a lot
a zillion is many
so many, too many
a zillion is probably more
than we've got
