A good guide for teaching poetic forms with great, kid-friendly examples.
WOW! What an incredible book about poetry! Avis Harley combines the alphabet with poems and formatting to create a truly informative, yet fun book. I would recommend this to teachers who are doing lessons on poetry and writing.
