Kids poems can also be for the very young like Danish poet Halfdan Rasmussen’s collection “A Little Bitty Man and Other Poems for the Very Young” (translated by Marilyn Nelson & Pamela Espeland), illustrated by Kevin Hawkes. These poems are much simpler and incorporate a sense of play with the words. I particularly like the illustrator’s humorous choices for this collection aimed at younger children.
Today’s poem “A Miracle” is amusing, both in the text and the illustration. I do love a good laugh. 😉
