Genre- Poetry

Title: Hey You! C’merehey-you-cmere

Author: Elizabeth Swados

Publisher: Scholastic Press

Age Level: Elementary (3-4) or Upper (5-6)

Date: 2002

Summary: A poetry slam book. This book has many poems that are fun and silly and displayed in different ways.

Strengths: The book is directed toward a children audience. I think students could have a lot of fun with these different poems. The pictures are also fun and go with the poems. The way the text is written shows a lot of expression and enthusiasm in the poems.

Concerns: My only concern is some of the poems have no meaning. They are really pointless and that could be a problem for students trying to understand poetry.

Classroom Use: I think this is a good book to provide an example to students that poetry can be different and fun.  The teacher could assign students to write their own poems. She could give them a stack of poetry books to look at for help and this book would be a great one to include.
