Firefly July and Other Very Short Poems

Paul B. Janeczko

The award-winning author of A Poke in the I and the Caldecott Honor-winning illustrator of A River of Words present a collection of 36 very short poems (none longer than 10 lines) that celebrate the four seasons. Featuring the poetry of such great writers as Charlotte Zolotow, Langston Hughes, J. Patrick Lewis, Carl Sandburg and Robert Frost, Firefly July demonstrates how a few carefully chosen words and images can invoke powerful messages and prove once again that less is more. Ages 4 to 8.
