Format: Hardcover
Shape Me A Rhyme: Nature's Forms in Poetry is a beautiful children's picturebook matching brief poems by award-winning author Jane Yolen with stunningly beautiful color photographs of nature's creatures by Jason Stemple. Each poem and photograph is centered around a specific shape found in the natural world. A blend of whimsy and respect for the wonders of natural ecology, Shape Me A Rhyme is a delight for young people and highly recommended for children's library collections. "Triangle": To tell the truth, / The gator's tooth- / Triangular in shape- / Is dangerous / And dagger-ous / When that great mouth's agape.

A wonderful poetry book paired with nature images. Each image is also surrounded with other words to describe the shape, so it is a great learning tool for children!
