And just like that, it’s Friday once again!
This week I’m sharing a poetry collection that’s just purrrrfect for cat lovers like me.
Have I mentioned that I’m a cat lady?
I’m a cat lady.
So of course my heart did a little leap when I saw this beauty at the library!
This collection of concrete poems is so much fun! The poems are short and pithy, and the illustrations are just filled to the brim with colour and life!
Here are just two of my favourite poems in the collection:
The way in which the text and the illustrations are woven together is eye-catching, and really challenges the reader to take in the entire spread, making reading an active, rather than passive activity. This would be a great text for encouraging young writers to really allow themselves to write “outside the box”, and use the entire page as their canvas!
Honestly this collection is just wonderful – I can’t believe I’ve never come across it before. It would make the purrrfect gift for any cat lover in your life, of any age!
And with that, have a terrific week, friends!
Oh, and P.S. – I’m hosting Poetry Friday next week! How exciting!!! 🙂
