A sweet book of haiku. Honestly, the poems are just as appealing to girls, as Raczka writes us through the seasons of the natural world, but maybe the title will hook reluctant boys. Peter Reynolds' illustrations add the sweetness and skew the book to a younger audience. This would be a good book to use for a haiku writing activity, incorporating a walk outside.
A delight!
