Book Reviews . . .

“My students really enjoy listening to me read the poems in class. Even more they enjoy memorizing them and presenting them to the class! We use the poems from this wonderful collection during our poetry unit when the students are learning about different types of poetry and creating their own. The CD is an added bonus because after the students present their reading of a poem I would play the song for them to hear too. I wish every poem had a song to go with it, because the students love to hear them.”

"We purchased the Great Lakes Rhythm & Rhyme because the subject matter is so relevant for all grade levels. The accompanying CD really brought the poetry to life, and the students were very excited to be able to “join in”, as we heard about the many components of Michigan’s history. Our second graders in particular enjoyed the Audio version of “Furs to Trade.” What a great way to teach about the wonderful heritage we have in Michigan. This book and CD works extremely well in collaborative projects with the teachers. A Media class on poetry often fulfills a Social Science benchmark.”
