About the Author:

Dennis has illustrated many books for children, including Goodnight, Little Kitten. He lives in Mequon, Wisconsin.

From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 3–Recalling earlier times when memorizing poems was a given in school, Barbe groups these selections into nine predictable categories (animals, weather, holidays, etc.). Each selection is short, upbeat, rhymed, and easy to read. Marguerite Hamilton's My Dog is representative: My dog is lots of company/When I am all alone,/But he is too much company/When I have an ice-cream cone. A chart at the beginning of the book, Suggestions for Teachers, lists page numbers for themes and exercises, such as Recognizing rhyming words and Recalling the main idea. Although Barbe explores the many ways in which poetry can be used as a teaching tool to reinforce reading skills, he stresses that poetry...is, above all, meant to be enjoyed. Each selection is illustrated with well-executed black-and-white line drawings that give the book a nostalgic look. The poems and illustrations together reflect a safe, sunny, and somewhat old-fashioned world of childhood that will appeal to many.–Lee Bock, Glenbrook Elementary School, Pulaski, WI
