Read full description of the books Something Big Has Been Here CD:Something Big Has Been Here is a anthology of poems in verse by Jack Prelutsky. In the beginning of the book, is poem with the same title as the name of the entire anthology, Something Big Has Been Here. It is about something BIG that left a footprint. The book continues with poems about animals, people, siblings, and poems with silly titles. Each poem from beginning, middle, and end are clever, thought-provoking and relatable.
The age range of this book is nursery through advanced. It even states on the back cover page that the book is for "All Ages." I agree that it can be for all ages because young children and adults can appreciate the word play. There are some vocabulary words that are advanced, like unblemished. Some poems are about siblings, and if you have siblings, you can relate to issues you've had with sisters and/or brothers if you are younger or older.
There are several poetic elements in the poems throughout the anthology. The poems include rhyming, "They tell me I'm peculiar, they seem to think I'm odd, they look at me and grimace, I smile at them and nod." Alliteration- "I am Wunk, a wacky wizard, and I wield a willow wand." Repetition- "I'm sorry I squashed a banana in bed, I'm sorry I bandaged a whole loaf of bread, I'm sorry I pasted prunes to your pants, I'm sorry"... etc. Simile- "The salad tastes like soap." Assonance-"Unflappable Five, we're mustered in formation to climb, to dip, to dive."
I would definitely recommend people to read the book of poems. They are good for reading aloud, for all ages, and easy to understand. Readers or listeners can relate to the topic discussed in the poems, but there is some challenging vocabulary. Pick up this book if you want to laugh!
