This book is a collection of different poems for each season of the year. This book would be a great resource for introducing seasons, poetry, or figurative language. This book can be used for grades 1 and up. ( )

Best for grades 1st and up, because of the many short poems within. This book provides a variety of short poems over the different seasons of the year. ( )

This poetry book can be used in a classroom to teach students how to interpret different texts and use figurative language to make it easier. I would say this book is more for independent readers because once they can interpret the poems, they can find a meaning, therefore I gave it 4 stars. Some of the illustrations are more abstract and the use of watercolors is unique. ( )

A book of small poems ranging in topic with gorgeous illustrations.
  chn3 | Aug 13, 2018 |
This is a compilation of poems by many different authors, grouped and illustrated to highlight the different seasons. The illustrations are done in watercolor, mixed media, and gouache for a versatile viewing experience. Not my favorite, but a good selection.

Selected by acclaimed poet Paul B. Janeczko and gorgeously illustrated by Melissa Sweet, Firefly July: A Year of Very Short Poems invites children to sample poems throughout the four seasons.
