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.  😉
