From John Updike's "Player Piano" to Walt Whitman's "I Hear America Singing," from Lucille Clifton's "the earth is a living thing" to Gelett Burgess's "The Purple Cow," these poems tumble from children's tongues and dance with their tapping toes. Whether joyous, rhythmic, solemn, or simple silly fun, poetry learned by heart has a lasting claim on children's affections and a permanent home in their hearts. The introduction includes tips for teaching kids how to memorize poems. Vecchione presents a selection of verses with rhythms, themes, and wordplay that especially appeal to middle graders.
