'This wonderfully laid-out, practical book explores ways of getting students interested in poetry.' --Choice
'As a veteran teacher, I prided myself on being a 'poetry teacher.' After all, we memorized poems, tried to figure out what they meant, and even devoted a unit to the study of poetry. Haiku, limericks, color poems and fill-in-the-blank poems were just a few types we explored. However, it wasn t until I started reading this book that I discovered the true magnetic force of the written word. --MiddleWeb
