Bauer combines science and spiritually. Both story and art create a beautiful way of showing the science of art and the art of science with poetic text and art. The illustrations are bold, rich, deep, abstract and a hit to the gut. The colors blend, melt, splatter and roll off the page. They are dark, with the right amount of light when and where needed. ~ Reviewed by Jeanette

Fred McFeely Rogers was a staple in multiple children’s lives in two countries. In A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood: The Poetry of Mister Rogers we have 75 songs from Mister Rogers' Neighborhood and The Children's Corner. Luke Flowers and his illustrations bring to life the characters from our childhood. Funny, sweet, silly and sincere poems/songs/stories about the everyday is probably what Rogers did best. These poems are about new siblings, being mad/angry, feeling shy, playing, even learning grown-ups where kids once, too. The afterwards gives some biographical information . ~ Reviewed by Jeanette

Earth Verse: Haiku from the Ground Up Cover Image

Availability: Usually Ships in 1-5 Days
Published: Candlewick - February 13th, 2018

The earth is built from the “ground up” in haikus. Each one is artistic but factual. Almost every aspect of Earth from core to the surface is covered. The slightly abstract, but also realistic illustrations, fit the theme perfectly. There are little codes at the bottom of the page that corresponded with a fact page at the end. ~ Reviewed by Jeanette

From the field to the stable and from riding to rest, Michael Rosen captures what it is to be a horse in haiku poetry. There are three sections each marked by a heading or title to the following haiku. Each one talks about horses, what it does and the surrounding areas. The poems are formatted to make the story flow. These prose poems complete this horse tale. ~ Reviewed by Jeanette

Did you hear what I heard? There is a new poetry book! Kay Winters and Patrice Barton have created a book of poems that will take you through the school day and year. From getting on the bus (what will mother do without us all day?) to how much one child loves her numbers (she really does), to an earthworm telling a tale (or two), right up to the hundredth day and beyond to the end of the year each poem includes facts, fun and the fantastic of school. Colorfully detailed illustrations accent accessible text for all ages. There is something for everyone! ~ Reviewed by Jeanette
