Poetry Friday is hosted today by Teacher Dance.

For Poetry Friday: "Birds of a Feather" by Jane Yolen with illustrations by Jason Stemple.

Poetry and the natural world -- a lovely pairing, particularly in this instance. Fourteen verses from the talented Yolen offer her affectionate perspective on the life of a wide variety of birds from the stately eagle to the familiar chickadee.

Haiku for a Cool Kingfisher

                                                          Hey, girl, fish lover,
                                                          Sitting on the dead gray tree,
                                                          Love the blue Mohawk.

The subject of each poem is beautifully illustrated by Stemple's eye-catching color photography.

A sidebar offering a short collection of relevant facts accompanies every entry to round out this delightful book.
