I'm often quite selfish on Poetry Friday. I post about things and poets that I revel in and want to read.
Today, I'm thinking of the kids. We're going to do a bit of rhythmic reading today.
Joyful Noise, by Paul Fleischman, is a fun little book of poetry, designed for recitation. The poems -- all about insects -- are laid out on the page for easy reading, easy assignment of parts, and easy "performance." The resulting lyrical rhythm is a delight to hear.
Go hereto take a look inside, and get a taste of what this book is all about.
Poetry Friday is hosted today by Becky at Farm School.
