  1.

  2. Oh, Judith Viorst, Judith Viorst,Your poems are wonderful, and never the worst.You reach deep down where children feel,And reassure them that their emotions are real.This book of rhyme is good for parents, too,Both to reassure their children and remind them whoThey used to be when they were young,And to remind them that growing up can be less than fun.But also, if grown ups read this they will undoubtedly find,Messages and help for their own troubled minds.Because what s so different about being [...]


  3. I received an ARC from Edelweiss The pictures in this book are awesome I love how they tie in with the poetry Not all of the poems have to be relatable, it s the three or four memorable poems that are what make a children s poetry book essential to a library collection At times the book seems a little bipolar However, a parent or teacher can guide children with questions to navigate their emotions Children will likely be able to relate with many of the poems The poetry covers school, family rela [...]


  4. WHAT ARE YOU GLAD ABOUT WHAT ARE YOU MAD ABOUT POEMS FOR WHEN A PERSON NEEDS A POEMWritten by Judith Viorst Illustrated by Lee White2016, 111 PagesGenre poetry, children s, humour I loved this new collection of poetry written by Judith Viorst who also wrote Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day Lee White s illustrations are complimentary to Viorst s words and sentiments.


  5. I feel so badly not really liking a book of Judith Viorst s poetry I loved If I Were in Charge of the World, have read it over and over and shared poems with lots and lots of kids But after reading through these poems once I felt pretty blah about them, so I read them through again today I still feel blah about themme seemed forced, some I found really hard to find any rhythm, words were put in odd sequences in order to fit some sort of rhyming pattern, and some of the thoughts and thinking don [...]


  6. We checked this one out from the library, but will be adding it our collection My 10 year old and I especially loved the poem In Between , including the lines too old to keep my teddy bear, too young to let him go In between and waiting for the rest of me to grow.



  7. Middle grade Reminiscent of Shel Silverstein Light and heavy.Story This is a poetry book with poetry on different themes, including feelings, school, family, seasons, friends and .Language Each poem is a page or two long, really big font, lots of white space, full page illustrations Most are light, talking about getting into trouble or the changing of the seasons or ice cream Others are heavy, about divorce or when your friend is not your friend any Read individually they can be quite serious a [...]



  8. 3.75 Granted this was intended for children which I learned about halfway through Middle schoolers would probably enjoy this, or elementary schoolers Reminded me a bit of Dr Seuss


  9. This is a great collection of poems about different moods and situations by Judith Viorst These middle grade poems are perfect for fans of Shel Silverstein and Jack Preulutsky.


  10. Madam read this first and then I read it Really liked it Tried out Arithmetrick from page 16 on Steven and it worked for both of us, of course That was fun think it would be fun to do with a group of kids during April for Poetry Month.


  11. From the author of the the beloved no good very bad day book, this collection of real, relatable, and beautifully illustrated poetry exposes issues both light and heavy that kids experience From wanting to exchange your sister for cat, to dealing with not being your best friend s best friend any , to dealing with the awkwardness of being in between , this poetry is for when someone just needs a poem, no matter how they are feeling These words give power and validations to a lot of real things th [...]


  12. I definitely need to have poetry in my classroom library and in my instruction I have poetry and enjoy it, but I m not consistent Maybe because I along with my students tend to associate poetry with stiff and formal literature and sometimes feel a little bit intimidated by it I know that is silly, but thankfully, this book will be a terrific place to start The poems in this book cover topics that are familiar and fun for all age groups emotions, school stuff, family, friends, seasons, etc Many [...]


  13. i only liked 2 of the many poems in this book the headliner, and the one on the back cover it reminds me of those movies trailers that show the only good parts the rest of the poems don t seem helpful to kids, which is supposed to be the point of this bookso, there are too many verses with poor prose and grammar, so that got annoying a few split words for jokes would have been fine, but too many is just lazy and the made up words in these poems seem sloppy, not seussianen towards the end it talk [...]


  14. It s hard to find anything charming, clever, and humorous than Judith Viorst s poems She s left breadcrumbs through childhood mostly her own sons , I think so that she can revisit and craft these quirky, rhyming not rhyming, silly, poignant literary bites My favorite collection is still If I Were in Charge of the World, but I was delighted to find to laugh at and love in this book.


  15. From Morgan What Are You Glad About What Are You Mad About by Judith Viorst is chock full of poems that perfectly describe the many passing feelings and lasting emotions experienced by children All the most important subjects are included family, friends, pets, travel, school plus a few mysteries.


  16. As always, Judith Viorst knocks it out of the park I ve loved her books since I was a child, and What Are You Glad About What Are You Mad About definitely hit all the right notes It s sweet and funny, with forays into all of the emotions a person might need a poem for.


  17. An interesting take on a variety of topics for school age children I enjoyed some poems than others, finding particular ones rather strange and a bit unpleasant every person has their own preferences and some of them were not mine Certainly worth a read if you are interested in poetry.


  18. I give 5 stars for Lee White s stunning illustrations 3 or less for the content Yes, I know it is by the amazing Judith Viorst I didn t find the poems particularly child friendly and frankly this title seemed kind of depressing overall.


  19. These are poems that middle grade students will like, divided into chapters about things like family, school, friends, and mysteries It is clear that Judith Viorst knows her audience


  20. Great for my 8 year old Neat illustrations, and poetry at its best relatable, fun, and covering lots of topics.


  21. Judith Viorst is still perfectly tapped into the mindset of children.Note I accessed a digital review copy of this book through Edelweiss.


  22. I loved this book of poems So relatable and fun, lyrical poems Deals with so many common emotions Great for 2 6th grade Really vibrant and fun illustrations, as well.


  23. A broad range of poems, some funny some thoughtful, they are grouped together in themes which adds a nice element to the collection.




  24. A poem for so many of childhood s events and experiences from the mundane to the extraordinary Makes me nostalgic for my childhood Some of the poems are a bit uneven, but I found them enjoyable.


  25. A fun, quirky collection of poems that help students tackle some tough issues such as divorce, jealousy, and everyday life Perfect fun.
