Beehive Nominees: Poetry: Part 1

BookSpeak: Poems About Books
by Laura Purdie Salas
5 stars

I love poems about books.  I mean, how could I not, right?
The Cliffhanger poem is especially fabulous.

Shiver Me Timbers! Pirate Poems and Paintings
by Douglas Florian
4 stars

This is a cute collection of pirate-y poems, which is guaranteed success at my house.  Some are very clever, some felt a bit redundant.

Boo says: 10 stars
Mister says: 10,000 stars!

Twosomes: Love Poems from the Animal Kingdom
by Marilyn Singer
3.5 stars

Super short, cute enough, but just not a lot to it.  Each page is a two-line "poem" about a different animal.  Some of them are pretty funny.

Boo says: 3 stars
Mister says: didn't want to read it
