Poetry Friday



Poetry Friday is hosted today by Beyond Literacy Link.

Summer is a time for travel and exploration so let me share with you "Come With Me: poems for a journey" written by Naomi Shihab Nye and illustrated by Dan Yaccarino.

 

Nye invites readers to join her in a journey through worlds both concrete and fanciful in this collection of 16 free-verse poems. Each turn of the page produces a new opportunity to be surprised, soothed, startled or delighted. The Observer offers the quiet contemplation to be found in the simple study of an inching caterpillar, a drifting cloud, or the glint of sunlight on a blue glass. In contrast, Where Are We Going is an energetic exploration of glittering cityscapes filled with the hustle of crowds.

 


Yaccarino's bright collage illustrations are a rich addition that produce their own sense of wonder and imagination while capturing the flavor of the text.
