A Foot in the Mouth
Poems to Speak, Sing, and Shout

author: Paul B. Janeczko
illustrator: Chris Raschka

Whether rhyming, tongue-tying, or defying structure, here are more than three dozen poems that simply beg to be read aloud. The creators of A Poke in the I and A Kick in the Head complete a triplet with this collection of lively rhymes and tricky tongue twisters, poems for more than one voice, bilingual poems and poems that just may inspire kids to memorize them.

"A superbly noisy celebration of language that’s sure to convert even the most reluctant poetry readers." — Booklist (starred review)
