A Great Big Cuddle (2015)

A Great Big Cuddle. Michael Rosen. Illustrated by Chris Riddell. 2015. Candlewick. 80 pages. [Source: Review copy]

Love poetry? Want to introduce your little ones to poetry? Michael Rosen's A Great Big Cuddle is a lovely collection of poems for the 'very young.' The poems are, for the most part, silly and fun and packed with rhythm.

Poems include:
  • Tippy-Tappy
  • Party Time
  • Music
  • Wiggly Wiggly
  • Reading Lesson
  • Mr. Hobson-Jobson Says
  • I Am Angry
  • Gruff and Dave
  • Let Me Do It
  • Hello Good-bye
There is a lot of variety in the poems. Some short and simple. Others a good deal longer. Some tell stories. Others are more a collection of really fun sounds to string together.

Overall, this one is easy to recommend.
