I do so love a book that connects to the imaginative spark in a child.

Gentle and fun.

This book has great information about planes and hurricanes. It would be great for intermediate level and shows the process of a hurricane.

These poems literally had me laughing out loud! This is a collection of poems by different authors. Some poems are long and others are short. They are all humorous and are written with rhyme.

The authors range from dance teachers to librarians and personal trainers. I couldn't help but compare the poems with the author to see if there are clues to their lives in them. The dance teacher wrote "The Invitation." It made me wonder if her poem might have been inspired by the students in her dance class.… (more)
