I tutor an elementary student in reading at our nearby school. He is a hard worker but is way behind his class in reading skills due to illnesses and absences. We both fell in love with the Lunch Money poems and illustrations. We used it as his reward after a hard 45 minutes of working on phonics, comprehension and flow of the narrative. He would give me a sly smile and leaf through the poetry til he made his choice. I would read it to him using funny, dramatic voices. Sometimes he would pretend to hide it in his take home bag. I promised he could have the book at the end of the school year. That's why I had to order more. I intend to make it part of my arsenal of tools to help next year's child. I would recommend it for any one working with 5 to 9 year old children. Ruth DeRisi

I'm a 2nd grade teacher who has an entire unit dedicated to poetry. My kids absolutely LOVE all of Carol Diggory Shields' books. They're silly, smart, and always entertaining to read. I promise this isn't just a biased review because I happen to know her (she works at the local library), but I can wholeheartedly tell you that your kid/student/pet/self will enjoy this and any other book Mrs. Shields has written. And if you don't end up liking it, please send it to me and I'll be happy to have extra copies!

Love this book. The poems are fun. One or two will confuse kids as they may be a little outdated, but most will be understood. I've bought this as gifts for other kids because our daughter likes it so much. Got it at age five and it is still a popular book on her shelf two years later.

My first-grader begged us for this book after having read it repeatedly at school. It's still one of her very favorites. The poems are silly and witty and fun to read aloud, and the illustrations are funny as well. Books like this really help young children develop a love for words and for reading.

My son was required to read this book and he found the rhymes to be boring and uninspiring. The illustrations were also lackluster.

Carol did her own review of her first book (I Am Really A Princess), so I shall do one of this book. I'm really not one to go around reading children's books, like, as a hobby, but one day, the author herself told me to read her book. I did and everything in it was true. From waking up late and almost missing the bus, to colds, to a little girl named Annie who's so into her book that she misses natural disasters and big black bugs, not to mention runaway busses. My very favorite poems include: "Amanda"(about a boy who thinks a girl likes him because she treats him so bad,) "Simon Says" (This poem is one sentence that's six lines long. I dare you to try to read it in one breath, I can,)"Far Away"(Annie's poem,) and "Clock Watching"(teachers will LOVE this one,) those are just a few. If you're an adult that's just messing around in the Children's section, go to the bookstore and FIND THIS BOOK!!!! If you're looking for the perfect book for you're school-age kids, go to the bookstore and FIND THIS BOOK!!!! Basically, if you're breathing, FIND THIS BOOK!!!! I guarantee this will tickle your funnybone 'til you pop!!

If you want to feel less alone in the real world of honest feelings, if you want to get in touch with true feelings, if you want to understand your emotions and explore your guilt and really dig deeper than sentiment--Carol Diggery Shields is the poet for you. Her voice is more original and her psychological depth deeper than most contemporary poets. She makes you feel less alone with your inner life. There is no sentimental frosting here. This is accessible and original poetry with a crafty use of language, a flowing free verse. I've spent my life reading poetry, and I find this poet thoroughly satisfying. Spend an evening or a morning or both with her LUNCH MONEY AND OTHER POEMS ABOUT SCHOOL and you will be moved and amazed at the original angles she takes on truth and human feelings and relationships. This is a poet of psychological, philosphical realization--a thinker who really probes the inner life with grace of expression.
My second grade students and I shared this book of poems during our first weeks together this year. They loved hearing the poems read over and over. The poetry is very 'today' and is a lot of fun to read and hear. The illustrations are colorful and lively. This book is a very nice addition to the back-to-school literature repertoire.
