The Kids' Magnetic Poetry Book and Creativity Kit by Dave Kapell, Sally Steenland


The Kids' Magnetic Poetry Book and Creativity Kit by Dave Kapell, Sally Steenland

Discover the mind-popping pleasure of poetry. Draw pictures with words, feel the music of a sentence, and learn to look at life with a mental squint. There's the poet's toolbox, with a little alliteration and the oomph of onomatopoeia, metaphor, simile, and to rhyme or not to rhyme. Game poems for groups--scramble poems, go 'round poems, automatic poems, and jigsaw poems--and the exotic classics--jaiku, tankas, lunes, and lanterns. Plus getting the creative juices flowing, whether writing about your deepest feelings, secrets, and fears, or composing an ode to a favorite T-shirt.
