ere comes another celebrity picture book: comedian Jeff Foxworthy has written a book of poems geared toward the preschool and early elementary school age group.
his collection has no theme other than the silly things that children do or think about. Topics range from strange family members (including Aunt Foo Foo) to a lost hat, to the funny noises made by animals, to making friends.
he poems vary both in length and style, are funny and/or sweet, and they are immensely readable. Some samples:
My grandma puts on lipstick
It's bright red like a rose
Because she cannot see too well
It ends up on her nose!
Salamander sitting there
Salamander has no hair
His friend the bear has hair to spare
But bear won't share
And thatís not fair!
teve Bjorkman's illustrations really make the words come alive. They are whimsical and just the right fit for this book.
