K-Gr. 2. The five rhymes in this All Aboard Poetry Reader each tell a nonsense story that takes off from daily life. Several are about food. As a boy slurps his noodles, an alien lands in his chicken soup ("He was goopy and green and not too tall. / His spaceship looked like a matzo ball"). Then there's the legendary kid who does everything upside down (he eats with his toes and runs bases on his hands) and is celebrated for it. The sounds of the thumping rhymes help make reading easy, and the big, colorful cartoon-style pictures extend the silliness with everything from that delicious soup bowl to the wild animals that skedaddle from a sneezing elephant on the savanna.
