Yard Art is an illustrated collection of twenty-five children's poems for little and big kids alike to pick through and enjoy like pieces of art displayed in the front yard. This original poetry collection will delight even the most reluctant young readers with fun-filled humor and eye-catching illustrations. While reading the poems "Yard Art" and "Sledding," kids can "gawp and gape" and "google and oogle" like yard onlookers- or discover the silliest ways to sled without snow. In "Front Talk," young readers will see what happens when they talk back to their mama before she can even issue an order And "Ike's Motorbike" introduces a crazy motorcycle that all kids would want to ride- but might give them a stomachache instead.
