This new series, geared toward the early elementary learner who may be encountering literary forms and terms for the first time, teaches by example, showing how poets use language in playful and effective ways to create meaning. The friendly illustrations add another layer of approachability, and each book invites the reader to Write Me a Poem based on a key idea outlined earlier. An elementary exploration of images and personification in poetry, introducing similes, metaphors, and haiku as well as poets such as William Carlos Williams. Includes a writing exercise.
