    Just a fun book for when you're not feeling like being completely nice today. Probably not things I would really repeat, but a nice change of pace home reading choice. Some may like some of these zingers, we're just more sensitive to other's feelings....

    This is a fun poetry book with a nod to William Carlos Williams' famous poem about plums! It's delightfully fun to read, and it's helpful when teaching a unit on poetry.

    The whole family is enjoying these. Bought these for my 9 year old to get her into poetry style other than Jack Prelutsky, but sill something funny. My husband and I love to read these with her.

    Loved these takes on the classic William Carlos Williams poem. I will definitely bet sharing this with my students and writing our own versions this year!

    These were delightful poems that I will have my student imitating next term. It's the sort of idea that I wonder why I didn't think of first, but I am glad she did! Take William Carlos Williams famous "This Is Just to Say" poem and apply it to famous stories and everyday life situations. Brilliant!

    This is a hilariously clever collection of false apology poems. There is nothing not to like about this book. Totally worth having on the shelf!

    My students loved this book because they related to the topic of false apologies. They confessed how many times they apologize because they are forced to.

    Love this little book, especially as a model for students' own writing. It also offers interesting perspectives on several traditional tales.
