Synopsis: This deceptively slender volume contains a treasure-trove of poems. Each page is crammed with verse and illustrations by Caldecott Medalist Arnold Lobel. Everyone's favorite poems are complemented by fresh new voices and organized into such unusual themes as food, the city, spooky poems, and word play.
I love colors! I love poetry about color!
I would use these poems in an activity during art with older children. The students could then use color to demonstrate a feeling or object. Younger children I would use these poems during a lesson on learning the color wheel.
This is a great collection of poems that will have poetry lovers of all ages immersed throughout the whole collections
Have the kids pick their random poems and write them out and decorate around them
