A collection of poems about personal catastrophes. Losing a pet, making embarrassing mistakes in class, losing clothing (in public), and costing the team the winning point are just some of the problems children will be able to identify with.
Review:I think it would be well-suited to a bedtime read-aloud. Some poems are better than others and may be appropriate for specific circumstances a child is facing.
