I usually share single poems from collections here, but today I want to share a bit of Think Big!, Liz Garton Scanlon’s latest beautiful picture book (Bloomsbury, 2012).
I love that last couplet I shared there because the waiting is important. If
you’re reading this book aloud, it might be tempting to zip through it, because
it’s so short. But don’t. Read slowly. Let kids study the picture. Help them
figure out what is happening on each spread. Art and understanding both take
And then the book ends:
What a great celebration, full of both art and heart!
The very funny Ed DeCaria at Think Kid, Think! has the?Poetry Friday roundup. Go enjoy!
