My Sister Looks Like a Pear: Awakening the Poetry in Young People.
Anderson, Douglas
This book, written out of the author's experiences while working with the Poets in the Schools programs in elementary schools in 10 states, contains a large assortment of student poems. It also contains specific tools which teachers may use to help their students learn to write and enjoy poetry. Forty-six chapters contain hints and observations on how to enjoy, understand, and teach such topics as rock and roll lyrics, self-esteem, imagining you are a color, imaging you are an animal, imagining you are dead, and writing a poem about the future. The author concludes that poetry is music and that music is in everyone and for everyone. (TS)
