Poems that tickle all of a young reader's senses. Children create order in their world by relying on their five senses and their experiences. In this engaging anthology, young readers are inspired to use those senses and experiences to discover the myriad delights of poetry. Educators Christine San Jose and Bill Johnson have selected more than sixty poems--some classic, some contemporary, some from kids themselves--to amuse young readers and spark their imaginations. These poems tell stories, create unusual sounds, and paint delightful pictures to appeal to children's sense of wonder. A note to parents on how to use the book is included.
