Editorial Reviews

Richard Owen
"Poetry Tag is bouncy, it wags, it dips, and it snorts. What joy. Most of all what works for me is the friendly banter, one poet to the next...I can't wait to start again at the beginning and read it through."
Read Roger Blog
"[T]he organizing principle of the book is neat, with each poet "tagging" the next to write a poem which in some way links to his or her own. Fun and cheap: 99¢! The poems are light and lively, and I'm glad to report that the line-breaks remain sacrosanct no matter how you mess with the font size."

    Poetry Tag is a hit!

    Poetry Tag Time is a great way to bring poetry and poets into the classroom. The collection is a buffet of children's poetry with a variety of styles and structures to please every taste. We are sharing this anthology in our second grade classroom as part our month-long poetry celebration. We could not get enough!
    We are planning to stretch the poems over the next month. The "tag" concept was a hit. We loved reading how each author connected and drew inspiration from the previous poem. The playful commentary between the writers gives the feel of a game and invites the reader into the fun. A few aspiring poets even played poetry tag during recess!
    In addition to the poetry, this "book" serves as a wonderful resource. Readers will meet some familiar friends and are bound to be introduced to a few new ones along the way. The collection concludes with a tidbit about the contributing poets as well as a link to their web pages. Teacher and class can continue the poetry journey by following their favorite authors.

    Fun poetry format for kids!

    Poetry Tag Time is a fun new way to introduce and involve children in poetry. I teach creative writing K-6th which involves not only writing but reading/exploring children's poetry and literature. Poetry Tag Time is a sure way to activate students' curiosity and expose them to poetry in a format that is familiar and accessible. I am a bit sad to find any good writing in technology form, rather than in a book - but I can't deny the value of this for my students.
