Poetry Friday

Poetry Friday is hosted today by Wee Words for Wee Ones.

In this season of family togetherness is seemed appropriate to share "Grandparent Poems" collected by John Micklos and illustrated by Layne Johnson.

Micklos' collection of twenty-two poems celebrate the special experiences and memories that grandparents, both past and present, bring to their families. You'll find many familiar poets here: Lee Bennett Hopkins, Nikki Grimes, Mary Ann Hoberman and more.

Johnson's detailed illustrations offer heart-warming portraits of families in a variety of settings.

I'm not familiar with this volume of Grandparent Poems - I need to check it out. Thanks for introducing it to me, Janet. =)
