About this title

Synopsis:

Recognizing children's natural delight in rhyme and wordplay, poet and teacher Lee Bennett Hopkins suggests ways for educators to use nursery rhymes, jump-rope jingles, and songs as springboards to the enjoyment of poetry. He also introduces twenty-four modern children's poets, including Nikki Giovanni, Shel Silverstein, and Carl Sandburg, through brief biographies and helpful bibliographies. This indispensable volume concludes with numerous activities--many suggested and successfully used by educators in the classroom-to get children excited about and involved in reading, writing, and enjoying poetry.

Pass the Poetry, Please! has been a staple in classrooms and libraries across the country for over twenty-five years and has proven itself an invaluable resource. This new edition-revised, enlarged, and updated-contains a wealth of new ideas for bringing children and poetry together. So turn the page and learn how you can pass the poetry!
