A Celebration of Bees: Helping Children Write Poetry.
Esbensen, Barbara Juster
The primary purpose of this book is to offer suggestions and writing examples for use in teaching children to write poetry. Each of the 15 chapters deals with a particular subject that could be useful in introducing poetry writing to students. The chapters discuss such topics as developing word consciousness in children, writing cinquains and haiku, and writing poems about water, the seasons, weather, the city, morning, night and the moon, people, animals, inanimate objects, and moods and emotions. Each chapter contains poems by children of various backgrounds, possible activities, and a list of individual poems related to the subject covered in the chapter. Included also are a selected bibliography of poetry books for children and an index of the ages of the poets in this book. (TS)
