Rhyme Time: Celebrate National Poetry Month this April
|April 22, 2016||Posted by Miss Shari under Children's Literature|
This month fun with words is the theme – check out some of these poetry picture books. Author Eloise Greenfield and illustrator Jan Spivey Gilchrist have teamed up in two poetic picture books Honey, I Love – a rhyming storybook through the eyes of a young girl about the simple joys in life – and In the Land of Words a collection of short poems and word plays.
Next Kam Mak shares his collection of poems in My Chinatown – a beautifully illustrated walk through a year in New York’s Chinatown. Using vibrant colors and life like drawings each season is created into a life like experience.
Finally, just in time for Earth Day, a lively picture book, This is the Earth by Diane Z. Shore and Jessica Alexander and paintings by Wendell Minor. A wonderful resource for sharing Earth Day activities for recycling, caring for the Earth, respecting nature.
Enjoy these amazing picture books for story time, quiet time or rhyme time.
