The poems in this book are very practical for use in the classroom at any level. "Metaphor" and "Haiku" demonstrate particular styles and elements, while some poems just speak about the power of words and books. The illustrations add to the mood of each piece. I would recommend this book for classroom libraries to demonstrate poetry writing and specific literary elements.
