Book Description

What are your favorite holiday memories? Your favorite gifts? Jane Yolen writes about pumpkin pie at Thanksgiving; Douglas Florian about playing with dreidels; Lee Bennett Hopkins about the true meaning of Christmas; J. Patrick Lewis about Mew Year’s Day. Have you ever wondered what a spider thinks at Christmas? Have you ever given a gift that later made you wonder, “What were we thinking?” Do you remember your first bike, your first baseball glove, your first bottle of perfume? As with Vardell and Wong’s second book in the PoetryTagTime series, P*TAG, photos provide writing prompts for these and two dozen other poems that will bring back warm gingered memories of your own family celebrations.

Gift Tag features poems by: Jeannine Atkins, Jen Bryant, Rebecca Kai Dotlich, Margarita Engle, Douglas Florian, Helen Frost, Joan Bransfield Graham, Lorie Ann Grover, Avis Harley, David L. Harrison, Sara Holbrook, Lee Bennett Hopkins, Bobbi Katz, Julie Larios, J. Patrick Lewis, Pat Mora, Ann Whitford Paul, Laura Purdie Salas, Michael Salinger, Amy Ludwig VanDerwater, Charles Waters, April Halprin Wayland, Carole Boston Weatherford, Robert Weinstock, Steven Withrow, Allan Wolf, Janet Wong and Jane Yolen.

PoetryTagTime is Book 1 in the series.

Book 2 in the series is P*TAG, the first-ever poetry anthology e-book for teens.

Book 3 in the series is GIFT TAG, an anthology of holiday poems to celebrate Thanksgiving, Hanukkah, Christmas, and "Mew Year's Day for Cats"!

Praise for the PoetryTagTime, P*TAG, and Gift Tag series:

“[T]he organizing principle of the book is neat, with each poet "tagging" the next to write a poem which in some way links to his or her own. Fun and cheap: 99¢! The poems are light and lively, and I'm glad to report that the line-breaks remain sacrosanct no matter how you mess with the font size.” --Roger Sutton, Read Roger
“[A] collection of poetry that simply: YOU. MUST. HAVE. . . . The results are spectacular. Here is an eBook worthy of classroom use with plenty of teen appeal. Plus, it is perfect for reading aloud as well.” --Teri Lesesne, The Goddess of YA Literature

“What a wonderful way for teenagers to encounter poetry; and the interactive nature of the e-book invites readers to explore each poet’s work more deeply.” --Marjorie Coughlan, Paper Tigers

“In the engaging poems of PoetryTagTime children will discover just how amazing and magical words can be. Delighted young listeners, readers and writers will surely rush to join the poets at play with words.” --Glenna Sloan, Give Them Poetry

5.0 out of 5 stars Not Just for the Holidays December 29, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Fans of Poetry Tag and P*Tag will definitely enjoy this fun little collection. Though inspired by the holiday season, many of these poems are on general topics relevant at any time of the year. They're so short that you can easily gulp down a handful at a time, though some of the poems were so fun they left me wishing they were longer. (My favorite is "Xylophone".) I curled up on a comfy chair with my Kindle to read "just a few", and ended up devouring almost the whole book in one sitting. I'm a teacher, and I plan to look up the photography website where the pictures are stored and have my 5th graders search for inspiration among them the way these poets did when we do our poetry unit in the spring.
