Write The First Customer Review

Young children learn how to compose their own poetry using the poetic elements they use in everyday conversation. Rather than trying to force their thoughts and emotions into established patterns, children compose with metaphors, similes, personification, and the other poetic elements that come naturally to them. The book includes writing suggestions and exercises, art activities to extend and enhance poetic expression, and many sample poems written by students and children. Illustrations.
