Daniel Finds a Poem

by Micha Archer

Published by Nancy Paulsen Books / Penguin, 2016
32 pages
ISBN: 978𢠥99169137

Ages 4-8

Each day leading up to 揚oetry in the Park, Daniel asks a different animal what poetry is. And each animal has an answer. Poetry is 搘hen morning dew glistens, says Spider. It抯 搘hen crisp leaves crunch, says Squirrel. It抯 揳 cool place to dive into, says Frog. By week抯 end, when the event arrives, Daniel turns the many things he抯 heard into a poem that reveals how poetry is senses, and observation, and language, and feeling. 揙n the way home, Daniel stops to watch the sunset sky reflecting in the pond. 慣hat looks like poetry to me.挃 A quiet, purposeful story featuring brown-skinned Daniel features lovely, striking collage illustrations and invites children to notice the poetry in the small moments of their lives. Highly Commended, 2017 Charlotte Zolotow Award 2017 Cooperative Children抯 Book Center
