For each month of the year, there is a Haiku poem that represents the seasonal aspects of that time of year.
Beautiful illustrations complement soothing poetry about the seasons of the year. This is great for bedtime with young children or in a classroom where you're teaching poetry form.
This was a wonderful surprise. For me, Haiku can be very stilted. This definitely was not. I could see lots of ways to enjoy this book with children.
This is a picture book of poems that can be used in many different ways.
This one is easy to bring to life with audiences of different ages. It is great for engaging children with sensory reading, learning about the seasons, and learning the months. For older children, it is an exceptional way to engage children with poetry.
