Garbage Delight Reviews
OK so it was a real shift in tone from McCarthy's The Road but a wonderful return to earth. Nothing quite equals this book and Alligator Pie in their constant presence in my life. I still have such vivid happy memories of sitting crosslegged crammed in with friends at the librarians feet looking up. Now my kids sandwich me tightly while I read it. It feels really human and good.
I borrowed this from the library about a week ago and we've read it at least twice a day since. The illustrations are simple and pair very nicely with the text. Silly and fun to read aloud!*note: this is the illustrated version of the poem, not the full anthology of poems by the same name.
This is a book of fun Canadian poems perfect to read at bedtime or out loud to a classroom full of children. Children can relate to these wacky poems that are about Being Five, Mulligan Stew and eating Monsters. Like other poetry books by Dennis Lee, Garbage Delight is full of fun and interesting illustrations that will grab the attention of any child who picks it up.I Eat Kids Yum Yum!A child went out one day.She only went to play.A mighty monster came alongAnd sang its mighty monster song:“I EAT KIDS YUM YUM!I STUFF THEM DOWN MY TUM.I ONLY LEAVE THE TEETH AND CLOTHES.(I SPECIALLY LIKE THE TOES.)”The child was not amused.She stood there and refused.Then with a skip and a little twirlShe sang the song of a hungry girl:“I EAT MONSTERS BURP!THEY MAKE ME SQUEAL AND SLURP.IT’S TIME TO CHOMP AND TAKE A CHEW—AND WHAT I’LL CHEW IS YOU!”
good laughdip into the children's world nice rhythm imaginativeand I wish I read it as a child.feels like the book "alice in wonderland."but maybe boy's versionI like that the child in the book is strong and warm and innocent. strong voca, which is probably why some of the poems in here feel powerful.
This is a very cute book of poems and would be best for those who enjoy whimsical poetry. The poems are a bit humorous and can be enjoyed on different levels by children and family. This author has many other books similar to this one such as, "Alligator Pie".
Love words? Bet you don't know a beeter way to share that love with children than to give them examples of how much delight words can produce... Dennis Lee is a Canadian Phenom who loves words. (Occasional echos of A.A.Milne are heard).
Fabulous poetry book for kids.
I asked specifically for this book for Christmas a couple of years ago - just so I could see if I'd enjoy it as much as I did when it was read to me in school, lo these many years ago. I did!
