It only takes a few words, if they’re the right words, to create a strong image. Whether listened to in the comfort of a cozy lap or read independently, the thirty-six very short poems in this collection remind readers young and old that a few perfect words and pictures can make the world glow. Selected by acclaimed poet Paul B. Janeczko and gorgeously illustrated by Melissa Sweet, FIREFLY JULY; A YEAR OF VERY SHORT POEMS invites children to sample poems throughout the four seasons.
FIREFLY JULY can be found in local independent bookstores, through IndieBound, Barnes and Noble, Amazon, or in your local library.
FOR EDUCATORS: A great collection for National Poetry Month, here’s a wonderful resource from the Classroom Bookshelf.
