Poems are the best thing to read on a day like this  Apr 11, 2007
I am positive you will love this book. I know I did.If you don't know what book I'm talking about let me tell you. The name of the book is called "Because I Could Not Stop My Bike". This book is filled with fun and silly poems like "A Messy Room","I Never Saw a Talking Hat", "Mismatched Socks" and much,much more. The book is also filled with tons of rhyming words that will make your head spin. Poems are the best thing to read,create,or even send to a friend.
Educators Recommend  Mar 8, 2004
In this poetry picture book, Shapiro takes 26 famous English and American poems and transforms them into fresh and fun verse for children. Elizabeth Barrett Browning�s �How Do I Love Thee?� becomes �How Do I Love Ketchup? Let Me Count the Ways.� Joyce Kilmer�s �Trees,� becomes �Me�: �I think that I will never see, / another person just like me.�

Faulkner�s pen-and-ink and watercolor illustrations are in perfect tune with the text.
The cartoon-like double-page spreads and spot art are lively and expressive.

What is so wonderful about this book is that it works on many different levels. It is a winning choice for reading aloud to younger students. Too, teachers can use this in middle and high school classes. We took the book into an eighth-grade Language Arts classroom where we discussed various poetic forms. We read to the students the original poem (such as Kilmer�s, �Trees,�) and then Shapiro�s version. The students loved it. They then created their own versions of such classics as Robert Burns� �A Red, Red Rose.�

This book receives our highest recommendation: Suitable for district-wide library acquisitions.

Tiger, Tiger took a bite/out of my dessert last night  Sep 4, 2003
This is a very clever idea, and very well-executed, both in terms of the poems and the illustrations. The parodies of the poems I'm already familiar with are great fun, and the ones I don't know work well on their own -- they're also making me hunt down the originals so I can get more out of them. Although this book is aimed at slightly older kids, our 19-month-old enjoys it, and he'll continue to get more and more out of it as he understands more of it. As will I!
Poetry Can be Great Fun!  Jun 16, 2003
Karen Jo Shapiro has written a charming collection of poems for kids and their parents. Based on classics that adults will recognize, each gives kids the giggles with amusing kid topics like favorite dinners and messy rooms. Clever and fun, this is perfect for cozy "read to me!" bedtime sharing!
