Poetry Month: day 16

Why read just one poem?  Why not read a whole bunch of poems, and why not let those poems tell you a story?

Another way to promote and celebrate poetry is to explore novels in verse.  Novels in verse are often written in short pieces of free verse–quick reads, but so good to go back through and dig deeper to really enjoy the gems of language viagra equivalent.

Here is a starter list of elementary-/ middle-level novels in verse:

  • Love That Dog   by Sharon Creech (& Hate That Cat)
  • Heartbeat  by Sharon Creech
  • Addie on the Inside  by James Howe
  • Inside Out & Back Again  by Thanha Lai
  • Libertad  by Alma Fullerton
  • Crazy Man  by Pamela Porter
  • Witness  by Karen Hesse
  • Zorgamazoo  by Paul Weston (this one is different from those above in that it is one continuous poem, with meter and rhyme scheme.  It is a fantastic read-aloud.)
(If you have any other titles, please share them in the comments.)
