Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
AGERANGE: Ages 4 to 9.

This is a collection of fourteen poems about weather accompanied by large colorful photographs. Lyrical and imaginative words describe the fog, rain, storms, and rain. Winter cold has a photograph of icy trees with a poem that describes them as "branches blooming with ice, paint a shocking picture of frosty white trees on winter's blue sky." A fun poem has a photograph of two children eating "icy treats" and the poem tells how the "searing sun" melts them so they need to "Quick! Lick!" One page is devoted to a brief explanation of the language of poetry. Another page lists types of poems such as acrostic, cinquain, and haiku along with the title and page number that tells where they can be found in the book. Although these poems are written for children in the early grades, they could be used in higher grades for the study of forms of poetry. A glossary, bibliography, Internet sites, and an index are included. Reviewer: Vicki Foote
