(Read for Poetry Discussion assignment) Very creative haikus about each different breed of cat (or as many as can fit in a picture book). Educates children on the variety of cat breeds as well as the haiku form. This can be an introduction to a class project on students creating haikus of their own, about their favorite animals.

The Maine Coon's Haiku: and Other Poems for Cat Lovers is a book with a lot of short Haiku's about cats. It has poems about the different kinds of cat their are like the Norwegian Forest Cat, and the British Shorthair cat, the Himalayan cat and many other different cats.

I really do not like cats personally, but if you are teaching haikus I think this is a great book to use. There are very good examples of Haikus all throughout the book.

I would use this book in my classroom as an example of haikus, and together as a class we can write one. We could also use this in a theme about pets.

This would be a great book for children learning about poetry and specifically haiku. The illustrations do a beautiful job at bringing eat cat's personality and haiku to life.

This is a collection of haikus all centered around cats and their associated colors. Each poem describes a cat in the style of a haiku. The segments are split among outdoor cats and indoor cats. There is rich vocabulary and beautiful illustrations. The illustrations are soft and colorful.

Haiku as a form of poetry is so accessible and un-intimidating that it's a good one to teach early, so that all students start building their confidence as beginning poets. Using beloved family pets for subject matter seems like a good way for kids to tap their own knowledge/experiences to inform their writing.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0763664928, Hardcover)

In evocative haiku, Michael J. Rosen depicts twenty different breeds of cats—whether mischievous or mysterious, comical or commanding.

Some cats have names that suggest far-off lands, like the Turkish Angora and the Norwegian forest cat. Others allude to places closer to home, such as California’s ragdoll and the Maine coon. Set against Lee White’s graceful illustrations, with intriguing facts about each of twenty breeds at the end, this charming haiku collection for lovers of America’s most popular house pet provides the purr-fect book to curl up with.
