I picked up a sweet new poetry board book this week. HAIKU BABY by Betsy Snyder is great fun and a great addition to any baby gift! The book is small--typical board book size. And it has tabs on the side that serve as a simple Table of Contents type thing. The tabs show an illustration of the Haiku topics. When you go to the tabbed page, the word appears (in Japanese and English). Each is accompanied by a very sweet Haiku. The author gives us a Haiku about rain, flowers, the sun. leaves, the moon and more. The illustrations are bright and happy--perfect for young children. This is a great little poetry collection for young children. I can see it in the hands of early elementary students too. These board books hold up well in classrooms and I think this would be a good addition to any poetry collection.
The round up this week is at In Search of Giants.
