First Verses Reviews


"Parents, care-givers, and teachers will find many of these verses, and their accompanying illustrations, inviting ways to encourage children to join in the reciting and the reading themselves."--School Library Journal
"Noisy action rhymes full of playful nonsense will have toddlers and their caregivers counting, pointing, clapping, and acting out... The appeal is in the sounds of the words, the physicalness of the scenarios, and the combination of the gross, the fantastic, and the cozy."--Booklist
"These rhymes are useful, refreshing, and fun to use...lively pictures..."--Children's Book Review Service
"John Foster's selections are designed to 'make even the wiggliest toddler listen up...' The verses also introduce young ears to the fundamentals of poetry and encourage children to focus on content by acting out the rhythms. The verses are illustrated with round purple plums, mischievous monkeys
and smiling, laughing kids."--Curriculum Review
