About the Author:

Judy Young remembers showing her grandmother a poem she had written when she was about ten years old. Her grandmother encouraged her to keep writing, and Judy did! Judy is the author of over twenty award-winning children's fiction, poetry and nonfiction books. Her books are used extensively in elementary classrooms. One of Judy's most cherished honors was attending performances in which her book, R is for Rhyme, A Poetry Alphabet, was choreographed by the Tanner Creative Dance Program and Children's Dance Theatre at the University of Utah for their 58thAnnual Performance. In addition to writing, Judy specializes in school visits and writing workshops for students nationwide and is a frequent speaker for professional educational organizations. Judy resides in Mink Creek, ID.

Review:

"Twenty-six sidebar lessons on poetry, each linked to both a poem and a cheeky colorful illustration. The wit and mischief in the painterly illustrations (Juhasz identifies himself as a caricaturist)welcome even new poetry readers to give verse a try. Under "N is for Narrative," for example, there's the tightly metered poem, "Reading Homer" and a panoramic painting that includes an angry Cyclops menacing a Greek ship as a goddess arises from the sea and Homer himself hovers over a young dreadlocked boy reading The Odyssey wide-eyed. The accessible sidebar lessons (each about 150 words long) read like entries in a children's encyclopedia. Other topics run the gamut from the basic ("L is for Limerick) to the esoteric ("T is for Tanka"). This rich compendium would also work well in the classroom." Starred Kirkus Review
