A book composed of many short poems written by sixth-graders as part of their poetry unit in school.

This is a fun book. It is a book of poems that are all apologies for some reason or another. Some of the reasons are so silly and some of them are sweet. I love the creativity that went in to creating this book. Rather than just making a book that tells kids it's important to apologize, they show kids doing it through their letters. I think that this book is a good way to teach children that saying sorry is important, even for the silly little things that happen. The quality of the art in this book is cartoonish through the work of line drawings. There are so many fun illustrations that really enhance the poems that are being displayed in the book. It would be fun to have the class write their own apology poems after reading this book, even if it is just to someone as silly as their pet hamster. ( )

This adorable poetry novel is a collection of apology poems from a sixth grade class. Each student was prompted to write an apology poem, "this is just to say..." and then are given written responses back. I enjoyed this poetry novel because it was very humorous and the poems were easy to follow. This book is suitable for third through fifth grade and can be used to teach different types of poetry seen throughout the book. ( )

This is a clever book of poetry from a class of six graders. The teacher asked her class to write poems and ended up publishing them because they were so well liked. In their original poems, the students were writing apologies and so in the book, they had the people that they apologized to, to write back. This is a good book to use when discussing types of poems like apology poems. ( )

Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0618616802, Hardcover)

When Mrs. Merz asks her sixth grade class to write poems of apology, they end up liking their poems so much that they decide to put them together into a book. Not only that, but they get the people to whom they apologized to write poems back.

In haiku, pantoums, two-part poems, snippets, and rhymes, Mrs. Merz’s class writes of crushes, overbearing parents, loving and losing pets, and more. Some poets are deeply sorry; some not at all. Some are forgiven; some are not. In each pair of poems a relationship, a connection, is revealed.
