A Foot in the Mouth

By Paul B. Janeczko

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

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.

  • From the award-winning team of Paul Janeczko and Chris Raschka, a spectacular follow-up to A Poke in the I and A Kick in the Head!
  • A collection of favorite poems as well as new or lesser known poems
