Poetry Friday Roundup is hosted today by Laura Salas: Writing the World for Kids.
When a teacher remarks that there is a poetry in science, one young student suddenly finds himself hearing everything as science verse.
Jon Scieszka strikes again with a book filled with laugh-out-loud parodies of well-known songs or famous poetry by Edgar Allan Poe, Lewis Carroll and others given a science turn. Robert Frost's classic morphs into "Astronaut Stopping by a Planet on a Snowy Evening." I'm a Little Teapot gets the Scieszka treatment as does Mary Had a Little Lamb. The verse is very clever and even more fun if you are already familiar with the original work.
Lane pulls out all the stops with rib-tickling success as he makes the assortment of science topics a visual feast that is easy to understand.
