I don’t know how I have not had this poem book in my first grade classroom for the past 4 years! I absolutely loved every page of it. The poems are true to the minds of students, silly, and filled with energy. The reader is guaranteed to come back wanting to read or hear more. The poems cover the perfect topics that are familiar to all students, such as heavy backpacks, teacher’s pets, field trips, homework frustrations, and much more. It also made me smile thinking back to my childhood year and the same feelings towards the adventures of the school day. I especially like the poems about the truthful ups and downs that life of a student brings. I think this is a fantastic book to read to students when introducing new subjects, since a variety of them are written about in this book. Of course these subjects are written in a humorous way and includes illustrations that show accurate feelings, expressions, and of course are silly. I am not one to normally love reading poetry, however, this book left me laughing and excited to read more!
