K-Gr 3This newly illustrated title has been repackaged for the I Can Read series. The bright, full-color artwork is much more modern and appealing than the earlier editions static three-color version. It is interesting to compare the work of the same illustrator over the 27 years since the first edition was published; libraries should consider a fresh copy of this collection of poems for newly independent readers."Anne Connor, Los Angeles Public Library" Copyright 2008 School Library Journal, LLC Used with permission.
