KIRKUS REVIEW

A rhyme per letter, making more or less of the repeated sound, but otherwise conventional wisdom (""A kite is made for flying/ When March winds blow,/ Kindness is for everyone -- / Didn't you know"") or conventional whimsy (""How/ Jolly to go jogging/ along a jungle way/ And join the jumping monkeys/ who jabber at their play""), or unlikely lyricism: ""A vagabond voyage across the sea/ May be pleasant for you, but/ Not for me./ Give me a hill/ And a valley view,/ And a sleepy village to wander through,/ An old grape vine,/ A tail pine tree,/ And the first spring violet --/ That's for me."" If that's for you. . . .
