    E ARC from Edleweiss Above the TreelineIn some ways this is a sort of seuel to If I Were in Charge of the World a book that was one of my daughter's favorites when she was in elementary school mainly because it captured so many of her emotions at the time This one is for a slightly older audience and many of the poems were perfect for middle school students I'm Not My Best Friend's Best Friend Any could in fact be the signature poem of middle school experience but there are others like All Alone Inside My Very Own Skin and Keeping Up With My Friends that also very brilliantly portray some of the difficult moments that middle school students go through The illustrations by Lee White are very attractive Fun with a 1960s retro vibe probably because of the uality of the line drawings More modern illustrations are very smooth and look computer generated but White's have a Joe and Beth Krush uentin Blake uality to them As for the uality of the poetry Viorst is my gold standard for light hearted verse She uses form and rhyme in innovative ways has amusing topics but is always flawless in her execution The perfection of scansion and rhyme while playing with the rules a bit it's breathtaking If you haven't picked up her volumes of poetry for adults such as How Did I Get to Be 40 Other Atrocities do yourself a favor and find copies right now They are hysterically and heartbreakingly true to the experience of being thirty forty or fiftyI definitely want to see an actual copy of this but the 63 x 8 size bodes well for this At 112 pages it looks like a middle school book than an elementary one and will be perfect for the poetry unit that the 7th graders at my school do There's plenty of figurative language and poems longer than 40 words if students need one to memorize In fact this is so perfect that I may have to buy two copies

    Oh Judith Viorst Judith ViorstYour poems are wonderful and never the worstYou reach deep down where children feelAnd reassure them that their emotions are realThis book of rhyme is good for parents tooBoth to reassure their children and remind them whoThey used to be when they were youngAnd to remind them that growing up can be less than funBut also if grown ups read this they will undoubtedly findMessages and help for their own troubled mindsBecause what's so different about being chosen lastOr losing a promotion when you shouldn't have been passedWhile sometimes echoing a man named ShelThese are distinctly your rhymes that you write so wellSo Judith Viorst I give you stars of goldCould you please write for grown ups before we're both too old?

    I received an ARC from EdelweissThe pictures in this book are awesome I love how they tie in with the poetry Not all of the poems have to be relatable it's the three or four memorable poems that are what make a children's poetry book essential to a library collection At times the book seems a little bipolar However a parent or teacher can guide children with uestions to navigate their emotions Children will likely be able to relate with many of the poems The poetry covers school family relationships and friendshipSome issues1 Children reading these poems are not likely to know what ET is it's a reference to outdated pop culture 2 Just About Ready is too reminiscent of a Shel Silverstein poem The words And I'll What? Did you just say it's Sunday? sounded like a rip off 3 The e reader formatting needs improvement


  4. Chris Chris says:

    I feel so badly not really liking a book of Judith Viorst's poetry I loved If I Were in Charge of the World have read it over and over and shared poems with lots and lots of kids But after reading through these poems once I felt pretty blah about them so I read them through again today I still feel blah about themsome seemed forced some I found really hard to find any rhythm words were put in odd seuences in order to fit some sort of rhyming pattern and some of the thoughts and thinking don't seem to gel with the thoughts and thinking of the kids I've worked with for the last ten years or just made me roll my eyes I didn't give it a 1I'll give Ms Viorst the benefit of the doubt because she's always been high on my listbut I'm not keen on these poems at all And I feel really really bad about that

    WHAT ARE YOU GLAD ABOUT? WHAT ARE YOU MAD ABOUT? POEMS FOR WHEN A PERSON NEEDS A POEMWritten by Judith Viorst Illustrated by Lee White2016 111 PagesGenre poetry children's humour ★★★★I loved this new collection of poetry written by Judith Viorst who also wrote Alexander and the Terrible Horrible No Good Very Bad Day Lee White's illustrations are complimentary to Viorst's words and sentiments


  6. Laura Harrison Laura Harrison says:

    I give 5 stars for Lee White's stunning illustrations 3 or less for the content Yes I know it is by the amazing Judith Viorst I didn't find the poems particularly child friendly and frankly this title seemed kind of depressing overall


  7. Anna Anna says:

    We checked this one out from the library but will be adding it our collection My 10 year old and I especially loved the poem In Between including the lines too old to keep my teddy bear too young to let him go In between and waiting for the rest of me to grow


  8. Chelsea Chelsea says:

    An interesting take on a variety of topics for school age children I enjoyed some poems than others finding particular ones rather strange and a bit unpleasant; every person has their own preferences and some of them were not mine Certainly worth a read if you are interested in poetry


  9. Wonderish Wonderish says:

    This book rules I love it so much I'm going to buy it

    375 ☆Granted this was intended for children which I learned about halfway through Middle schoolers would probably enjoy this or elementary schoolers Reminded me a bit of Dr Seuss
