Poems for Kids and Me by Jessie L. Best is a fun, well written children's book. The book consists of five poems, and each has a different plot. The first one follows a child whose best friend is a troll named Gunther, the best friend ever. The second is about a mouse who is the engineer of a train, and he always drives people into town once a week. The third is about a child who wants to be pushed on a swing, and he wants to go higher. The fourth is about a child who goes to the park, and decides that they don't need to bring the wagon with them. The final poem is about a girl who acts like a very fancy person.

I really enjoyed reading Poems for Kids and Me by Jessie L. Best. The stories are all very fun and relatable. The book is very well written and the rhyming is very well done and never falters. I liked that each poem had a story. I liked the third poem, and the last poem the best. The pictures depict each poem very well. The pictures are also bold and colorful. The characters in each poem are all likeable and relatable. Each poem followed a pattern and never failed to please. Each poem will make children smile, and they will not want the book to end. I would definitely recommend Poems for Kids and Me to all young children.
