Publication Date: September 1, 2012
This book would be a natural fit for National Poetry Month in April. But the poems are so happy and engaging, they could easily begin any day in the classroom as a delightful read-aloud, or even as a tool for dramatizations. The fun rhymes are sure to get young minds engaged in the wonderful world of words, making them excited about language, reading and poetry. And emphasizing the importance of the regular routines of their days, starting and ending in bed, offers the potential for beginning to understand their place in their families and the larger community around them.
