Poetry Friday is hosted today by Write. Sketch. Repeat.
My selection is "There's no place like school : classroom poems" selected by Jack Prelutsky with illustrations by Jane Manning.
From the rush to the morning school bus, through show and tell and the lunchroom to the closing bell -- it's back to school with eighteen poems by some of the craft's most well known names including Lee Bennett Hopkins and Jack Prelutsky.
Short, light-hearted and fun, the verses delve into some of the familiar experiences and asks age old questions such as why the teacher only seems to call on me when I don't know the answer.
