The author makes poetry lots of fun by using both words and poetic forms to show us her world. Readers can discover and create meanings as they explore the images and ideas of each poem and as they absorb the various forms, meters, rhymes, and arrangements of the poems. Writers will be inspired to ponder the poet’s process in choosing the form of the poem. The author’s appealing illustrations add to the visually rich imagery of the poetry.
