What's This Book About

Publisher Summary

Usher in National Poetry Month with Mr. Tiffin and his students, stars of the hugely popular How Many Seeds in a Pumpkin? and The Apple Orchard Riddle. Once again, Margaret McNamara sets her playful, child-friendly story in the classroom, and this time, poetry–from metaphors to acrostics to haiku–is the name of the game. The focus here is on Elinor, whose confidence falters as she tries to write something perfect for Poem in Your Pocket Day and impress a visiting poet. G. Brian Karas’s accessible, adorable illustrations add to the fun. Includes a list of Mr. Tiffin’s tips for celebrating Poem in Your Pocket Day. A nimble introduction to poetry as well as a sensitive look at the perils of perfectionism. –The New York Times Pair this book with the works of Shel Silverstein, Paul B. Janeczko, Jack Prelutsky, Douglas Florian, or Robert Louis Stevenson. –School Library Journal, Starred
