A selection of funny poems for kids or grown up kids illustrated with full colour cartoons. The poems range from short rhyming raps to longer story poems about the ups and downs of growing up and how to rise above problems and find the Heroic in our everyday lives.
Whether worrying about the first kiss or rethinking how you treat others, the poems ask us about what we say and how our actions and attitudes affect how we regard others around us and how they see us.
The poems are written by an elementary teacher and have been road tested in the classroom. They make great starting points for creative writing and discussion around a whole range of issues common to growing up in our contemporary world. The poems are paired with cartoon style illustrations that bring the words to life.
Poetry is to be heard and spoken; many of the poems in the collection are great for rapping, chanting, or generally joining along with.
Whether you are a parent looking for a fun way to share poetry with your kids or a teacher looking for some amusing start-ups to discussion or creative writing then there is much to find in this collection.
Writing poetry should be grounded in personal experience to fully engage the listener or reader and much of the material in this collection is based upon the author’s personal life growing up, and the stuff that has happened since, in one way or another. Dip in and share with a kid near you!
