Poetry Friday

Poetry Friday is hosted by My Juicy Little Universe.

For Poetry Friday -- "Words, wit, and wonder : writing your own poem" written by Nancy Loewen with illustrated by Christopher Lyles.

Loewen provides young poets with a beginner's look at poetry's basic tools in a discussion of forms and concepts such as rhythm, rhyme, simile and metaphor.  Writing activities and tips together with a bibliography, glossary and list of related resources rounds out the book.

Simple illustrations brighten pages without pulling focus from the content.
