Gr 3-6-Within an open, appealing, and approachable format, this attractive book uses poems written by children in early elementary grades as examples of the various poetic forms. Selections by Hulme and Guthrie are also used to illustrate specific points of instruction. Throughout, small reproductions of paintings accompany discussions of mood, form, perspective, etc. The examples are appropriate for many age levels and suit the subject matter well. This book is a good addition to collections that already include Myra Cohn Livingston's Poem-Making (Harper, 1991), which is more suitable for an older audience. Paul B. Janeczko's fine Poetry from A to Z (S & S, 1994) uses well-chosen poems by well-known poets as examples.-Jean Pollock, King Country Library System, Seattle, WA
