it was amazing
bookshelves: poetry, upper-elementary, young-adult, african-american
Read in April, 2012

My students are doing aa unit on Walter Dean Myers and the librarian brought in this book. I love it and so do my students!

When students begin to read it, I remind them of the book from kindergarten, Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?. It helps them find the rhythm of the poem. Once they are involved in the rhythm, they sink into the story. I've caught a couple of them chanting!

I love to see my students so enthralled by a poem. They actually groaned when they finished the book and asked if there were any others like it. I think we need more poetry in my classroom.
