And I just described only one of the poems! Each one has a lovely introduction to the subjects, also great to read. There are indeed poems to last throughout the year, from the eagle as “Royalty”, to my favorite, “Morning News” where we learn of clues of the night’s adventures through seeing early prints in the snow. The poem reads, “I read quickly./Today’s wind soon sweeps/old stories out of print.” And there are words like “fish are leaping,/tail dancing” when the ice finally melts. I could continue with examples of many more, but I would rather you buy this book for your Kindle, or whatever place you have for e-books, and enjoy every page yourself.
This will be an excellent mentor text for both nature writing and field sketching!
My third graders BEG to hear another GOOSE LAKE poem. They feel that they are mysteries to unravel. All the figurative language provides perfect puzzles for my third graders to ponder. I often find them using the same language to describe what they see in our outdoor classroom. Below are some quotes from my students!
"I think it is great he didn't tell... he used his words to SHOW!" Hayley C.
"I thought it was really cool. I felt like I was there inside the poem" Sydney
"I used to have ducks. My duck used to quack like the ducks in the poem. I really like David's book" Katie
"I like the book. the book is really cool if I heard the poems for the first time without knowing it was a true story I would have thought it was made up" Charlotte
"I like how much description he uses" Lexi
"I think the books is great because I like the details he uses. It seems so quiet there." Kalie
Their white bands jiggling up and down
seem to glow like skeleton bones
out to trick or treat.
My only regret was that the book ended. But the author promises more! This is a book to enjoy and share. Highly recommended.
