Read Aloud Rhymes

Endless homework assigned, and my boy on his bedroom floor 
reading Read Aloud Rhymes for the Very Young.
"Homework time."
"I'm busy reading."
"That book is too young for you. See, 'the very young.'
You're twelve."
"I'm reading the acknowledgments."
That response bought him ten more minutes.
Of course when I came back he was reading
the poems again.
There's a new edition. Published by Scholastic I think.
Edited by Children's Poet Laureate Jack Prelutsky.
What poems does your child love?
