    I really liked how the poems and pictures included animals and things on a barn because this is very enjoyable for people of all ages, however, I would only recommend students who are at least 7 years old to read it but not any younger Something I found to be very interesting was that the page number of every page was in all the illustrations This made it less traditional andinteresting The 13 selections are loosely connected by the first and last poems written in the voice of the poet I really liked how the poems and pictures included animals and things on a barn because this is very enjoyable for people of all ages, however, I would only recommend students who are at least 7 years old to read it but not any younger Something I found to be very interesting was that the page number of every page was in all the illustrations This made it less traditional andinteresting The 13 selections are loosely connected by the first and last poems written in the voice of the poet as she sits in her barn and observes the sounds and smells and movements of the world around her This book is filled with both rhyming and free verse to inspire childrens senses of observation

    I was looking for poems about luck for this month s storytime Clever sometimes just a little too clever rhyming poetry cover subjects from from farm life and nature The lucky poem has a twist which will work for story time Wendell Minor s illustrations are, of course, beautiful.

    Published in 1999, I am thrilled to have found this book of poetry If you need a mentor text for using metaphors and similes with the a theme this time, writing throughout the book, this is it With Schertle s wonderfully clever poems, Minor shows well that there is poetry everywhere one looks Or is it the other way round, with Minor painting, and Schertle writing A young girl is shown through a window, at a table writing, mixing words and pictures as she writes the first poem, titled Right Published in 1999, I am thrilled to have found this book of poetry If you need a mentor text for using metaphors and similes with the a theme this time, writing throughout the book, this is it With Schertle s wonderfully clever poems, Minor shows well that there is poetry everywhere one looks Or is it the other way round, with Minor painting, and Schertle writing A young girl is shown through a window, at a table writing, mixing words and pictures as she writes the first poem, titled Right Here, in the book Here is part of the poem I ll dig a pond right here Dig down deep until the water and the words run clear Later, when Schertle writes Poem About Rabbit, she writes that she is writing a poem about rabbit A pink eyed poem that watches from the edges of the page, that nibbles at the corners of my mind It s a treasure of a poetry book, among others, of course, but I m very glad I have read it

  5. Jacquelin Devlin says:

    My favorite of all her wonderful poetry books These poems about barns, wind vanes, writing paper, turtles, rabbits and other farmy stuff are a step above the cute, silly poetry most kids are introduced to, a perfect beginning step tocomplex work, yet still incredibly accessible to young readers Beautiful illustrations Wow

  6. Rachel says:

    This poetry was very descriptive, without actually saying what it was describing unless, of course, you looked at the title or the illustration I read Scarecrow I think that it might be fun to read some of these poems to children and see if they can figure out what is being described and it can also help them to learn about descriptive writing.

    Another great book of descriptive poems for comprehension lessons Most of the poems are aimed for 3 5 grade but they could be used for younger grades depending on the class The Rabbit poem worked great with visualizing with my first graders

  8. Jim says:

    i m not familiar w the poet, i checked this out because of Minor s art which is fantastic look for the poems floating in air, on the water and being munched on now i have a new poet to read, so Good.

    Poem From a Distance This poem describes sheep and it is wonderfully written The whole book focuses on the fact that poetry is everywhere in the natural world With each picture on every page, there is some allusion to poetry whether it be a piece of paper or a pen or pencil Great book.
