Once again, 2006 included a variety of works by new and favorite poets-- picture book collections, nature themes, humorous verse, historical poem-stories, a poem biography, poems for the very young, all accompanied by the work of many distinctive illustrators. Stock up with new titles, double up with multiple copies, and speak up sharing poems with kids you care about every day.
The list begins:
Brown, Calef. 2006. Flamingos on the Roof. Boston: Houghton Mifflin.
*Zany, syncopated story-poems are accompanied by crazy, cock-eyed story-paintings about all kinds of make-believe creatures.
For more details, get your copy of The Poetry Teacher’s Book of Lists.
