It’s Friday! 

Handsprings by Douglas Florian

These poems are all about spring, so what a perfect choice for these long winter months. And these poems are short and simple, with lots of rhymes, which makes them a perfect poetry readaloud for the younger set.  The illustrations are small, and in subdued colors, but provide a nice, light touch of humor.  All the tradional aspects of spring are covered here, from baseball, rainy days, spring cleaning, to playing in the mud, bugs, flowers, and more, and in ways that even younger readers will be able to relate to.   So, if you and your child “love leaves, and flowers, and daydreaming for hours,” this is a great book for your poetry Friday.
