Name of Book: Higglety Pigglety Pop and other first poems
Age Group: Pre-school
Author: Various including poems by Edward Lear, Spike Milligan, AA Milne, Lewis Carroll and Michael Rosen
This was a gift to my daughter and I have to say one of the first books with known poems like the Owl and the Pussy Cat.
Pros: Introduces the fantastic world of poetry to the child. The beautiful illustration in the book, makes poetry very interesting. Some of the poems are worth a mention – The Owl and the Pussy Cat, Higglety Pigglety Pop, Oodles of Noodles.
Cons: Not all the poems catch the attention of the child. For example not sure why the poem called Valentine was included.
I love reading the Owl and the Pussy Cat and giggle at oodles of noodles. I like the cat pictures.
