“In the spirit of Paul Fleischman’s Joyful Noise: Poems for Two Voices (HarperCollins, 1987), Gerber presents 18 poems with lines to be read aloud. . . In an easy, kid-friendly fashion, the author explores relationships in nature. . . This collection will educate youngsters while showing them a fun way to read poetry.”
School Library Journal, January 2013
“This brilliant poetry book was written for two readers. Text is in two colors so readers can differentiate between the reading parts. Teachers could use this book to teach students about poetry. This book would also be good to use to teach students about fluency and prosody when reading aloud. This book would also be great for units about plant, flowers, pollination, bees and nature.”
