Mary Hohman's Reviews > Autumnblings
"Autumnblings" is collection of poems written and illustrated by Douglas Florian. The intended age group of this book is primary ages five through eight. The book is poetry about autumn and the changes that happen in the season. There are 48 poems accompanying descriptive paintings. My favorite poem in this collection is "What I Love About Autumn" because it reminds me of all the things I love about fall. I like how Douglas Florian uses form to create meaning with the words in his books. This is also known as concrete poems, which is an interesting element to children. These poems have a rhythm and structure that flows, is easy to follow and comprehend. The poems are fun and energetic for children to embrace the autumn season. I rated this book five stars because this is a great book to share with children in the fall months. Children like this book because they can relate to the topics. This book is a great resource to use to spark for ideas for children to write their own poetry.
