Poem Depot: Aisles of Smiles by Douglas Florian - - ADVISABLE

Florian, Douglas Poem Depot: Aisles of Smiles, 154 pgs. Dial Books for Young Readers, 2014. $16.99. Language: G; Violence: G; Mature Content: G. POETRY

Silly verses about everything from Animals to Zero, these short, funny, illustrated poems are reminiscent of Shel Silverstein and Jack Prelutsky.  The pen and ink drawings are as clever as the poetry.  Simple (and easy to memorize) this fun collection would be a great addition to the poetry section of an elementary school. A bit too silly for older readers.
