A Foot in the Mouth: Poems to Speak, Sing, and Shout
Selected by Paul B. Janeczko
Whether rhyming, tongue-tying, or defying structure, here are more than three dozen poems that simply beg to be read aloud. The creators of A Poke in the I and A Kick in the Head complete a triplet with this collection of lively rhymes and tricky tongue twisters, poems for more than one voice, bilingual poems — and poems that may just inspire kids to memorize them. Paul B. Janeczko offers a range of gems, from classic Shakespeare and Lear to anonymous rhymes to contemporary riffs on everything under the sun, while Chris Raschka provides a counterpoint with the vibrant accents of his wittily detailed artwork.Book, 64 pages.
