A festive collection of poems is comprised of fresh, engaging selections about people, places, and events familiar to young children. Divided into sections titled “Me, Myself, and I,” “Who Lives in My House,” “I Go Outside,” and “Time for Bed,” the poems range from lilting rhymes to soothing free verse, tickling humor to warm expressions of love and affection. The poems come from across the English-speaking world, including Great Britain and the United States, Australia, and the Caribbean. The expansive illustrations for the oversized volume feature diverse children and convey a sense of warmth and celebration. (Ages 1–4)
