Celebrating Poetry

April 9, 2015

A Pocketful of Poems written by Nikki Grimes and illustrated by Javaka Steptoe is a delightful book to share during Poetry Month.

Grimes introduces her readers to Tiana, a young girl, who offers to share her pocketful of words. In each spread, Grimes cleverly pairs free verse and haiku as Tiana embarks on a poetic journey through the seasons of the year in an urban setting. Javaka Steptoe’s ingenious illustrations feature collages, using a variety of objects and materials. His designs lend themselves to playful interaction with readers who can have fun identifying items in the collages. This award-winning team has created a lively book that will give you a pocketful of smiles. Make sure to check this one out!
