Gonna Bake Me a Rainbow Poem

by Peter Sears

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
Gr 7 Up-- The sensitivity, perceptiveness, artistry, and inventiveness of young adults fill the pages of this compact collection. This is no ordinary poetry anthology. Instead, it combines the poems of the student winners of the Scholastic Writing Awards with Sears's analysis and instruction. Sears has grouped the poetry according to the major technique used or purpose intended. His explications are only suggested interpretations, and he presents his thoughts in a calm, conversational way. The poets' comments about how they work are included in the analysis. As a guide, this book's major attribute is the encouraging tone throughout, which suggests the merits of writing poetry and experimenting with different methods and techniques. The analysis and variety provided separate this new offering from previous collections of poetry by young writers. --Renee Steinberg, Fieldstone Middle School, Montvale, NJ
