There’s No Place Like School

Selected by Jack Prelutsky, illus. by Jane Manning, Greenwillow, $16.99 (32p) ISBN 978-0-06-082338-2
Rhymes and animated watercolors bring to life every aspect of school, from bus rides to class pets, lunchtime to science tests, in this collection of 18 poems written by 13 poets including Lee Bennett Hopkins, Kenn Nesbitt, Carol Diggory Shields, and Prelutsky himself. The things kids love (“My work’s all done./ I gotta run./ Two minutes until recess”) are balanced out by the things they hate (“If homework were banished, I’d probably never/ Complain about anything, anything ever”) and often mixed with the comically gross (“Of all the magic I have seen/ My favorite, I suppose,/ Was yesterday at lunch when Mark/ Made milk come out his nose”). Ages 5–10. (July)
