Read them alone
Or read them aloud.
Read them to your Mumsy or
recite them to a crowd.
Change the words,
Arrange the words,
Or rearrange the beat.
Know a poem?
Show it off
To everyone you meet.
Loris Lesynski's popular book of poems is newly released in full color!
Poetry is cause for celebration! It needs to be shared, shouted out, changed, rearranged, and most of all -- enjoyed!
Celebrated author and illustrator Loris Lesynski's first book of 28 original poems spills over with her fun-filled approach to poetry. This book is a celebration of the joy of language.
Loris's poetry is an invitation to be irreverent, observant, witty, expressive, and creative. She demonstrates how much fun poetry, and everyday life, can be. Poem themes range from mosquitoes to sock fluff to fretting mothers and monkey wallpaper-things that kids are really interested in.
Exuberant collection of child-centered rhymes that dance in your head and bounce off your tongue, that beg to be read.
Will leave you breathless but wonderfully energized
Will appeal to fans of Jack Prelutsky and Shel Silverstein.
Named to "The Year's Best" List. Will appeal to fans of Jack Prelutsky and Shel Silverstein. Will leave you breathless but wonderfully energized. An exuberant collection of child-centered rhymes that dance in your head and bounce off your tongue, that beg to be read, chanted, or sung aloud...terrific in a classroom, allowing teachers to have fun liberating the poet in every child.
Dirty Dog Boogie is a gem of a children's book, full of light-hearted irreverent rhymes. The cartoon-like blue and white illustrations match the spirit of the poems, a natural result of both being the creations of one talented person. The subject matter is original, the rhythm impeccable, the play on words amusing, and, if an entire poem doesn't stick in the mind forever, certain parts of it will -- it gobbled up the grub and grew, always keep a bit of boogie going in your head, puddles of sun. Parents and teachers will find this a terrific book to read to little children, who, when they are older, will enjoy the fun each time they read it to themselves. Highly Recommended.--Joan Payzant"Canadian Materials" (06/04/1999)
