If I Were in Charge... Jan 7, 2008
I'd give every family a copy of this book. It's now a read-aloud favorite of a 2nd generation - eliciting the same giggles and groans it did when first published.
Judith Viorst is Timeless Oct 10, 2007
This book is a handy tool if you are a substitute teacher or a room parent. The poems lend themselves to creative writing exercises for students of all ages. Even though the book is a bit dated, the poetry speaks to the basic truths of children that we all can identify with, young and old.
good book Nov 10, 2006
I bought it for the poem by the same title. I used it the first week of school for my 6th graders.
If I Were in Charged of the World Sep 7, 2005
Great book to read aloud to students and to challenge them to write similar poems.
I can even top that Mar 11, 2004
I was in the second grade when I first found this book, and subsequently read and memorized each poem. Viorst has an astounding ability to incorporate the hightened emotions of childhood with the reality of aging. She can be whimsical and rhythmic as well as dramatic and mornful. I would recommend buying this for any relative, friend, or yourself no matter what age. I still have my very first copy given to me by my grandmother and have yet to go a year without picking it up. Believe me, it is more than it seems.
