There's a book I fall back on when I need a little pick-me-up, and it's such a fun book that I thought I would share some of it today. It isn't exactly poetry, but it is poetic, and perfect to use in a classroom. So... think of it as my little gift to you if you are a teacher or writer. It is a gem.
The title is I Love and it is written by Brigitte Minne.
The descriptions are in the voice of a young girl, but written so beautifully that you will get a warm fuzzy feeling as you are reminded of your own childhood. It also provides a good mentor text for young writers.
Some are funny: I love to stare at the principal's large hairy mole.
And don't miss this one: I love to stand on a chair when dinner is over and say, "Quiet, please. I will now recite a poem."
Well, I've probably gone further than I should, but I do recommend this sweet quirky book. It will warm your heart and give you ideas for further writing.
And now, I will attempt a tricube as prompted by the book above. (I was going to add a tricube about making quilts but I can't get the photo I want, so... I rather like this one also.)
