Cornucopia: a collection of children’s poems :a Book Review

Cornucopia

Cornucopia by Bridget Renshaw 

 

When you look up the definition of Cornucopia this is what you get from the Oxford dictionary…

(formal) something that is or contains a large supply of good things The book is a cornucopia of good ideas.

This book is certainly that.

A bundle of touching comedic children’s poems

You don’t find too many books of poetry geared towards kids. Cornucopia is just that. It’s quite a fun collection for all ages. Filled with some very funny, clever writing with excellent teaching lessons within the rhymes.Loaded with children’s poems that deal with things like understanding  your feelings,they also inspire and encourage in many different ways. If you are looking  for something a little different this one might just be it. Read one poem a night at bed time , maybe a few might go over the heads of younger children but they will “Get” it eventually. Nothing wrong with making them think a little right?

I don’t think I have a favorite but there are more than a few very good ones. I can appreciate very much what I think the author’s  idea behind this book was. A helpful guide for growing kids to help them along.We all know growing up is not easy with the trials and tribulations of school,friends ,”Frenemies”? With titles like Not Ready to Grow,Paper Chain of Impatience,Homework?! You get the Idea. it’s a little something for everyone and all ages. As an extra to these poetic life lesson’s are the accompanying illustrations that are the perfect addition to each and every poem and also makes it a little more fun.

  1. You are so right! My kids love Shel Silverstein, but there aren’t tons of fun poetry books. Thanks for suggesting this one. We would love for you to link up with us at Literacy Musing Mondays #LMMLInkup http://www.foreverjoyful.net/?p=731

  2. My eldest absolutely adores poetry! I’ll have to keep this one in mind for her. Thanks so much for sharing this at Booknificent Thursday on Mommynificent.com this week!
