Lee Bennett Hopkins has put together another wonderful anthology of poetry. This collection features poetry about the sun, moon, and stars. The poetry is organized from the sun rising until the stars shine... accompanied by Mariusz Stawarski's illustrations. There's something calming about the verse in this collection. The illustrations are both colorful and bright.
This collection is gentle. It includes old favorites and new poetry... I'm always on the lookout for poetry to add to our collection. This book lends itself to a study of earth's cycles. I am always looking for poetry to use during a thinking strategy study and this collection offers many wonderful choices. It's always nice to find a new anthology around a specific topic.
