Overview

Acrostic? What kind of stick is that? Actually, it's a poem! Acrostic poems are created from a word or phrase written vertically down the page. Each letter becomes part of a line in the poem, revealing a thought or a clue about the poem's topic. Award-winning author Brian P. Cleary shows how even the wackiest words can make an acrostic poem.



Bow-Tie Pasta is packed with acrostics to make you snicker and snort. And when you've finished reading, you can try your hand at writing your own poems!

This is a great book to read or to use when teaching or learning about poetry. In the description it states: Bow-Tie Pasta is packed with acrostics to make you snicker and snort. And when you've finished reading, you can try your hand at writing your own poems! This is a wonderful description of this book. I loved the poems and learned something about Acrostic Poetry while reading it. From GIGGLES to LIBRARY, from INDIA to HOTDOG, you can't help but smile when reading these poems. There is a section at the beginning of the book descibing what an Acrostic Poem is and at the end their are resources you can look at on the internet. I recommend that all English classrooms and school libraries get a copy of this book. I received a copy of this book from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
