Poetry Friday is hosted today by My Juicy Little Universe.
My selection is "Chatter, Sing, Roar, Buzz: poems about the rain forest" by Laura Purdie Salas.
Salas invites readers to explore the rainforest through a variety of forms that make clever use of familiar poetry devices. In addition, she weaves information into her verses making this collection both entertaining and informative. Colorful, crisp photographs pair well with the text and make this book a treat for both ear and eye.
