Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this book of silly poems keeps its humor clean. There's nothing to be offended by here.
What's the story?
Foxworthy organizes his collection of poems as a little tour of SILLY STREET, taking the reader to Flo's Flower Shop, Daffy Dave's Diner, and to the Bubble Gum Tree.
Is it any good?
Turns out that not only is Jeff Foxworthy a fairly funny guy for adults, he also gets what makes kids laugh and he knows how to pull together a rhyme. His collection would be a fun addition to the family library even without his famous name on the cover. His mix of long and short poems makes it easy to find something to read even for kids who get antsy.
The illustrations are well suited to the story, with lots of busy kids and lots of movement. The result? A fun and funny book that might even become a family read-aloud favorite.
Families can talk about...
Families can talk about what makes these poems so entertaining. Kids might find themselves inspired to make up their own silly stories. Remember, if they rhyme, that's a plus, but the sillier the better! And then to top it off, break out the crayons and add some pictures.
