Doctor Knickerbocker and Other Poems.
Grell, Jane
Serving as an ideal entry point for children to self-expression and creativity, these participative poems by a storyteller blend the bounce and rhythm of Caribbean memory with universal aspects of childhood experience. The poems take the oral and musical folklore of the Caribbean and link it to the verse of the traditional English nursery rhyme to create a cross-cultural form in a theatrical or educational context. Titles of the poems are: "Waking up with Rhythm on a Winter's Day"; "Poor Mrs. Carnelley!"; "Watch Out Ousman!"; "Kelly-Marie"; "Get on with Your Work Salma"; "Ghost-Buster-Mark"; "Is It Raining Outside?"; "When I Think of Rain"; "English Rain"; "La Pluie Ka Tombe, Soleil Ka Claywe"; "The Puddle"; and "African Dance." A poem evaluating the poetry workshop concludes the book. (NKA)
