Children's LiteratureAGERANGE: Ages 4 to 9.
One of a series of themed poetry books, this book of poems with dramatic photographs covers a range of topics that include jazz, baseball, and Hollywood. Some of the poems are fun and easy to read and understand while others are more descriptive and lyrical. An acrostic poem with the subject ‘dream' features Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. A diamante about the Grand Canyon is written in a diamond shape. One page at the end explains the language of poetry and another lists the types of poems such as acrostic, cinquain, and diamante along with the title and page number that tells where they can be found. This is followed by a glossary, bibliography, Internet sites, and an index. All of the poems celebrate some aspect of our country with brief poems and large beautiful photographs which should be interesting and educational for all young readers. Reviewer: Vicki Foote
