Poetry Friday--Where in the Wild?

Where in the Wild?: Camouflaged Creatures Concealed...Revealed [591.472 SCH] with its "ear-tickling" poems by David M. Schwartz and Yael Schy and "eye-tricking" photos by Dwight Kuhn is, quite simply, AWESOME!

For a teacher the book could serve several purposes:
  • Science through the study of animals, camouflage, pattern, etc.
  • Literature, specifically poetry. Especially a study of forms.

  • Fold out pages contain factual information about each creature.

    For the reader there is the added delight of the search!

    Here's one of the concrete poems found within. I hope the scan is clear enough to read, if not, come down to the library to borrow the book!

    The Round-Up this week is being hosted by Wild Rose Reader.


    1. Ooh, that looks very cool. Off to put this on reserve. Thanks!
