Steps Into Poetry : Nonsense and Other Verse for Children
The verse in this book is designed to catch the minds of children and spark interest in rhythm and language. They have always preferred rhythm both in words and music to a bald story. Very small children also like nonsense being read to them by an adult; and older children may feel a sense of achievement as they grow to understand and appreciate poems that do not treat them as idiots but come more and more to appeal to their developing minds. In addition, teachers should appreciate a book that encourages children to read poetry, particularly if, like the verse in this book, it starts in simple terms and goes on to become deeper in words and ideas.
