Sort order. Start your review of Witch Poems. This book is one of our favorites to read around Halloween time.

There are witch poems from multiple poets including Shakespeare, L. Frank Baum, Myra Cohn Livingston and a few anonymous. One of our favorites is written by Myra Cohn Livingston. Get up and stir your magic brew. Jump up and mount your flying broom And muster up your charms and spells And wicked grins and piercing yells. It sets the mood and makes this a perfect book for Halloween.

There is actually one semi-nude illustration in the beginning of the book, but the book is labeled for children ages 3 and up. We enjoy all eighteen poems. My rating on this one is 5-stars.

This book has that reckless artistic freedom from the s that I love. As in, Sesame Street from the s versus the s. The illustrations are amazing--these are the witches you imagined in your childhood that scare you and fascinate you at the same time. The poems selected are excellent and memorable. A great book for early grade readers and, of course, for Halloween. Not ideal for all parents or classrooms; these are wild, wondrous, politically incorrect witches! View all 15 comments.

The selections presented in Witch Poems vary in length and form, but are almost all entertaining. I was interested to see "Wild Witches' Ball the second Prelutsky selection , as I have also encountered it in picture-book form. Somehow, despite being underwhelmed by it in that format, I found it more speaking here.

No doubt this owes something to Trina Schart Hyman's astonishingly expressive and delightfully spooky illustrations. The artwork here is simply glorious - beautiful and creepy all at once. I wish I had encountered this book as a girl, given my love for the witchy, as I would have adored it! Recommended to all young poetry lovers, as a deliciously spooky read at Halloween, as well as to fellow fans of Trina Schart Hyman.

Very fun. Feb 23, Sarah rated it really liked it. I really loved this book. The poems and illustrations went perfect together. Some of the poems have complex words and themes that a child might not understand. View 1 comment. Oct 29, Melki rated it liked it Shelves: pure-poetry , wascally-witches.

This is a collection of eighteen mostly forgettable poems featuring witches. May 11, Kami rated it it was amazing. Spooky and awesome--the illustrations are fabulous and the poems are perfect. I immediately bought a copy for a Halloween selection of books. Just the right amount of creepiness without being yuck. Mar 03, Dodie rated it really liked it Shelves: children-s , humor-and-comedy , poetry. A collection of poems for kids. The theme is witches. Witch Poems by Daisy Wallace is a festive picture book that compiles poetry, unsurprisingly, revolving around the subject of Witches.

Within the book, poets, such as William Shakespeare and E. Cummings, are heavily featured, as well as more contemporary poets of the time, such as Lilian Moore or Michael Patrick Hearn. Within the book, there is no sole plot, as there is one poem per page or two. Because of this, the poems grab the attention of the reader and keep the book from becoming dull. The deliciously gloomy illustrations are what really made the book stand out for me, personally.

Unlike many of the Halloween books of today, the witches were not made out to be cartoonish, chubby grandmothers, but terrifying sights to behold and to be feared. Within the vintage illustrations, children are seen to be cowering in fright and hiding, or running away from the sorceresses.

The spooky and, at times, comical poems within the pages of Witch Poems help make poetry appealing to children. Children will enjoy talking of the icky, sticky, and stinky things that go into the witches' brews, and the like. Also, who doesn't enjoy be a little frightened, sometimes? I would recommend this work to children of all grade levels, simply because the book was enormously fun to read, and would fit flawlessly within a Halloween curriculum.

For those editing this page: The book has 32 pages. I like studying the rhyme schemes of each. Turns out the editor likes poems with a mostly ABCB structure though others are present. Confused at "Witch Baseball" pg 19 But it was funny.
