by Pat MoraThis book is filled with poems about different foods that are native to North and South America. What immediately drew me to this particular book at the library was the vivid illustrations, and the fact that every poem is a haiku. Haiku can be very fun to read, and even more fun to write, simply because they can be about almost anything. They are also like a puzzle, as you have to fit the right amount of syllables into each line. I would definitely use this book as a method for teaching haiku to my students, and I would use them as samples if I wanted my students to write haiku as an assignment. I also love the illustrations in the book. They are very big and colorful, and they enhance the subject of each poem. Each page also features a small paragraph that gives information about the food and where exactly it is from. A lot of these poems would be excellent for read aloud, as they contain words like "yum!" and "mmm!" I would love to keep this poetry book in my classroom, as I think students would love to hear these poems.
