Despite these poems and limericks being rather short and quickly read, Lelsi Johnson writes them in such a way that you can absolutely picture them as you are reading. A lot of them also have a bit of a surprise punch line which is what makes them so fun to read. (Crackles and Pops especially I was not expecting and had a great smile on my face when I reached the end.)
There are 41 limericks and poems in this book - you can easily read through them all in a rainy afternoon if you need a pick me up, or save one for each day and read it when you wake up to start your day off on a happy note or before bed to ensure some sweet dreams!
I love to read and lately have been reading several books a week.
