Notes: "A bundle of touching comedic children's poems, Cornucopia encompasses a group of light, quirky poems about growing up and living life. It is recommended for ages 8-12 or younger to read aloud. The collection includes light and offbeat intellections with titles such as "Selling Happiness," "Scattered Thoughts," "Kelly the Kitten's Rough Day," "Mom's Clever Little Trick," and "The Feels." As a kid growing up, one embarks on a journey of living life, being happy, finding humor in the world and explaining things. Cornucopia encompasses the weird explanations and thoughts from a growing kid's perspective. Kids are at a weird and awkward point in their life as the training wheels have come off of them and they are given space to make choices and figure themselves out. They enjoy people, the world around them and visualizing their future endeavors. They are trying to find where they fit in the world. This makes Cornucopia a great collection as it encompasses living in the moment while dreaming about the future and making changes. Its different, moving aspects leave the reader in a place to make reflections and find deeper meaning in their own life. This collection includes about 140 poems and is similar in tone to Shel Silverstein's Where the Sidewalk Ends. It expresses ideas and concerns of growing children as well as originative and witty stories."

Great book of elementary poetry

by Bookwormy19 (WorldCat user published 2017-03-06) Excellent Permalink

My 4th graders are in love with this book. It's humorous, forward thinking, and can be used for a lot of classroom activities. Also my daughter carries it around all day and sleeps with it sometimes.

It is very clever with the writing and the poems carry a different meaning for love and life...
