TAKING TURNS: Poetry to Share

Email this review


A nice idea: paired poems on the same subject but of varying difficulty, the easier ones--for new readers--on the right, imposed on full-page watercolors that gently set the stage without outshining the poems; the left-hand poems--intended for adults to read aloud--on delicate backgrounds with decorative patterns that also refer to the subjects. The 26 poems are of good quality and mostly familiar, as are their subjects--animals, weather, moods, books, etc. Not essential, but very attractive.
