Noisy Poems for a Busy Day

Noisy Poems for a Busy Day
Written by Robert Heidbreder
Illustrated by Lori Joy Smith
Kids Can Press, c2012. 38 pages. Poetry.

This poetry/picture book features 30 short verses, one for every part of a child's day.  There are poems about getting out of bed, playing nicely, cleaning up, falling into a dream-filled sleep- and everything in between! Each one is imaginative and uses onomatopoeia (yes, I used spell check to help out with that one) to create silly, active poetry.  Heidbreder has written succinct, descriptive poems that small children will love. Smith's artwork is full of joy and brightness.
