Full of Florian's trademark clever wordplay, Poetrees is a collection of 18 poems and illustrations that celebrate all that is wonderful about trees. Befitting such a tall topic, each poem and illustration is printed on a vertical double page spread.
And, of course, each spread features Florian's mixed- media dazzlers. Includes an informative 'glossatree' at the back. This is a great cross-curricular title, interjecting language arts into your plant lesson plans.
Interest level for this book: Grades 2 - 6
Below are sample spreads from inside this book. Great illustrations! The poem for each spread (shown sideways) is printed to the left of the illustration, since you probably can't read it in our small samples.
