Read a Rhyme, Write a Rhyme Jack Prelutsky, Selected by Jack


Author: Prelutsky, Jack (COM)/ So, Meilo (ILT)
ISBN: 9780385737272 Publisher: Random House Childrens Books

ÒPrelutsky has invented a method he calls ÔpoemstartsÕ to help children get started in writing poetry. He provides several introductory lines of a simple poem and then offers some open-ended suggestions for its completion. In this thematically organized collection, Prelutsky offers ten poemstarts on different popular themes, complemented by three short poems on the same subject by different authors. . . . Though the volumeÕs intent is as a springboard to writing poetry, the thoughtful selections and SoÕs winning watercolors make this a successful poetry collection even without the writing prompts.ÓÑKirkus Reviews, Starred
