Ashlei | 28 comments Emma Dilemma: Big Sister Poems by Kristine O’Connell George

This book is full of poems with the common theme of being a big sister. Jessica’s little sister, Emma, does the typical little sister duties and isn’t always a “good” little sister. From embarrassing Jessica at soccer games, making her late for school, “shopping” in her room, to cheating at games the poems also model love and a bond between two sisters. Reading these poems would be an excellent way to model poetry while allowing time for students make countless connections within their own lives.

Ashlei | 28 comments In the Beak of a Duck Silly Poems for Children and Grown-Ups by Alan Gettis

This poem book is similar to Shel Silverstein’s poem books, such as Where the Sidewalk Ends. It is full of goofy, yet entertaining, poems accompanied by silly pictures that children and adults would get a giggle out of. The book consists of over 70 short poems that will surely get students engaged and interested in listening and hopefully writing poetry.
