Our Poems for Kids by Melinda Kinsman

Our Poems for KidsCatie turned off her Kindle and turned to the other Mystic Princesses who were smiling because the book was so cute. They’d just finished reading Our Poems for Kids (Top of the Wardrobe Gang, Book 3), a rhyming picture book, by Melinda Kinsman. “So, what did you think,” Catie asked the others.

“I liked ‘Row, Joe, Row,’ Coral said. “People need to learn to swim if they are going to be near the water.”

Breanna chimed and said that “Rhythm and Rhyme” reminded her of when she would hula dancing.

“I loved ‘Wild Child!’ because I love to be outdoors,” Janna said as she glanced at her hiking boots.

Harmonie said that “Do You Have What it Takes” was her favorite because it was a happy poem that tells kids they can do what they set their minds to do.

And Catie finished their book club discussion saying, “Of course, as a painter, I love colors. That made ‘The Paint Box’ and ‘My Boots are RED Boots!’ a lot of fun for me.”
