Read full description of the books:
Doodle Dandies is a very interesting and unique book. Inside are different poems that take the shape of what the poem is about. For example, one poem about a Dachshund puppy shows a picture of the dog and the poem around him. The illustrations are very vibrant and colorful. The pictures almost look real. There was a poem for everyone. There were poems about sports, pets, other animals, and items in nature. Each poem on a topic taught the reader a little bit about it and then the picture added to your understanding. Some examples of the poems that were insightful were Halley's Comet, skyscrapers, and turtles. My favorite poem was the one about a weeping willow tree. The picture was just so beautiful, a night scene with fireflies. I just loved the feel of the page. It was a little hard to read due to the mirror imaging but it was just so unique that it really stood out to me.
Kids will love reading this book because the poems are short so they will not get bored with the book. Sometimes after I finished reading the poem I spent about another minute just looking at the picture that went along with it because besides the words there was so much going on in the page. The pictures were not distracting from the poems, they were just so full of detail that when I looked closely I noticed things I did not notice before.
I could use this book so much in my classroom. This would not be a book I would read aloud to my students but I could definitely see this one being checked out a lot in my classroom library. In class we could try to recreate one of the scenes in the book using shoeboxes without the lids. For example, there was a poem about worms in dirt. Students could fill their shoeboxes with dirt and leaves and grass. In English we could make our own poems about random everyday objects and create pictures to go along with the poem. For extra credit I could challenge my students to actually put their words in the shape of whatever their poem is about just like the book.
For Pre-K through 2nd grade.
