Make Magic! Do Good! author/illustrator: Dallas Clayton

You may wonder if a book of poems is appropriate for preschoolers, but once you take a look at Make Magic! Do Good! (compare prices) by author/illustrator Dallas Clayton, there will be no doubt in your mind.

Filled with silly, poignant prose as well as cheerful, bright illustrations, Make Magic! Do Good! is a great way to introduce poetry to little ones in a fun, smart way. Some poems are designed to make your giggle -- "A Blue Apple" for example, and then others, like "The Boy with the Beard," are funny, but meaningful that offer kid-friendly advice about being kind and generous, among other things.

At over 100 pages, the book isn't a tome you'll read in one sitting, but rather a great one for pulling out at bedtime or when you feel like a cuddle.
