Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Found poems are sets of words written as prose for applications such as signs, ads, books, lists, letters, text messages, and tweets. “Found” by poets, the selections are minimally crafted (or left unchanged) and presented as poetry. This short, illustrated anthology opens with a useful introduction to the concept, the particular poems collected there, and the guidelines used in creating them. Varied and often vivid, the verse ranges from “How to Write a Poem on Your Computer,” mined from drop-down menus by Bob Raczka, to Juanita Havill’s “Hummingbird,” found in a gardening catalog. In “Marilynn’s Montessori Memo,” George Ella Lyon shares an oddly moving teacher’s note about a plastic model of the human body, while J. Patrick Lewis offers the entertaining “Nicknames in the NBA,” found in a basketball encyclopedia. As editor Heard notes, readers will find poetry everywhere if they “look at the world with poet’s eyes.” Illustrated with black-and-white drawings, this intriguing little book offers an appealingly down-to-earth entryway into poetry. Grades 3-6. --Carolyn Phelan


"...will have readers seeing inspiration all around them..."-Publishers Weekly
“Aimed at young readers, with an eye to helping them learn to write their own found poems, the collection will be a handy guide to an accessible form.” -Kirkus
“…this intriguing little book offers an appealingly down-to-earth entryway into poetry.”--Booklist
