The fabulous pastime of fridge poetry is back with this kid-friendly kit. Perfect for beginning readers, and a great stocking stuffer, the kit breaks stories down by phrases, such as "under the bed," "the nice queen," and "laughs out loud," making it easy to string sentences together. Each magnet is color-coded, depending on parts of speech, so once your child gets past simple composition, she'll start to recognize that all prepositional phrases are yellow, all noun phrases are blue, and all verb phrases are red. A perfect stocking-stuffer for the budding story-teller, this kit promises hours of magnetic enjoyment. (Magnetic Poetry, $14.95)
