“Whose underwear?! I wish I knew Who left these for me, all brand-new –“ Children’s Poet Laureate J. Patrick Lewis crafts a collection of poems that revolve around mathematical puzzles, playing on some of the poets’ most famous works. Although most kids won’t recognize the famous poems, or even the poets, the adults sharing the poems will. This has great potential as a read aloud.
