This whimsical poetry book is fun for kids and for adults, too Full of make believe creatures and different types of poetry, it was a great starting point for our unit on poetry that we are doing my daughter is homeschooled The kids both loved the rhymes and the imaginative illustrations.
Worthy Of SeussEmma Talamante, Goodreads Reviewer St Edition A is for Arnyx Is A Book Of Poetry For Children In The Spirit Of DrSeuss And Shel Silverstein There ArePoems, One For Each Letter Each Poem Is About A Mythical Creature Whose Name Begins With That Letter i was lucky enough to be a winner of the giveaway that was run through goodreads by the author i have to say that my kids and i enjoyed this book there are really amazing illustrations especially on the front cover, that you can really just look at and see all the little quirky characters coming to life I did have to skip a few pages of this book as i thought that some of these creatures were a little scary for the younger kids I think that this book really has a unique quality to it and it was fun to read Thanks for giving me the opportunity to discover this book.
Adorable I enjoyed reading this to my grandson The definitions in the back were amusing too I received this book as a Goodreads first reads winner.
Fun fun fun This book is reminiscent of Dr Suess in all of the best ways Made up animals, zaney characters and a great dose of fun I particularly loved the information at the end that discusses the inspiration for each creature.
I received this as a first read This book was very cute It is a children books with wonderful rhymes I also loved the illustrations Definitely fun to read out aloud A great book for story time.
Received this book as a First Read.
I read it to my 6 year old and he really liked it The verses were fun to read and my boy loved some of the outlandish names.
A cute book of rhymes in verse with colorful characters that can be colored worthy of Seuss This was a GoodReads First Reads book, sent by the author I came home to it after my trip, and read it to my daughter that peered curiously at the various creatures mentioned The explanations at the end held my attention better than my daughter s, but for a first reading, I didn t want to miss anything I m glad I didn t, too Some of the stories are as creative as the creatures themselves The verses vary in length and form, but each holds a rhyme It s hard to pick a favorite, but if pressed, I d have to go with the Umpdyump Each rhyme has it s own voice, so the book does not get tedious And as mentioned before, this would sit nicely next to Dr Seuss A great book for the young and those that simply think young Full disclosure I received this book as a GoodReads First read winner I liked the idea of what I thought this book could become fun verses for kids to help them learn the Alphabet with silly fun monsters Unfortunately, this book felt disjointed, scary at times, judgmental and accusatory, and filled with multiple issues with rhythm I think while adults will understand most of the rhymes I m not sure kids will get what they are really saying, which is where the fun ends up Without colors, many of which are discussed in the rhymes itself, it also leaves a lot desired from the illustrations Put simply, this book falls flat in all the ways I was hoping for it to succeed.
