BookSpeak! Poems About Books by Laura Purdie Salas (me!). Can’t tell you how proud I am to be in this list. I’ve blogged about BookSpeak tons and won’t subject you to more links!
In the Sea by David Elliott? — I shared a bit of what I love about this book (though no poem from it, which I will rectify soon!) here.
Last Laughs: Animal Epitaphs by J. Patrick Lewis and Jane Yolen — I shared two poems here and one more here.
Lies, Knives, and Girls in Red Dresses by Ron Koertge — I just read this one recently and haven’t posted anything about it yet. I love Ron’s dark and creepy creativity! (I confess I wanted more likable main characters, though.)
National Geographic Book of Animal Poetry: 200 Poems with Photographs That Squeak, Soar, and Roar! compiled by J. Patrick Lewis — I shared one poem here and another poem and the teaching guide here.
UnBEElievables: Honeybee Poems and Paintings by Douglas Florian — I read this recently at the bookstore but haven’t posted yet, though I chose a favorite poem to share–soon!
Water Sings Blue by Kate Coombs — What? I haven’t blogged about this book? I picked it as one of my 5 Favorite Poetry Picks of 2012 for a fall book conference and was sure I’d shared it here, too.
Clearly, I need to share some poems from these fantastic books. I’m off to make some notes on my blog calendar!
