More About A Poem in Your Pocket (Mr. Tiffin's Classroom Series) by Margaret McNamara; G. Brian Karas
 
 
 
Overview
Usher in National Poetry Month with Mr. Tiffin and his students, stars of the hugely popular How Many Seeds in a Pumpkin? and The Apple Orchard Riddle.

Once again, Margaret McNamara sets her playful, child-friendly story in the classroom, and this time, poetry--from metaphors to acrostics to haiku--is the name of the game. The focus here is on Elinor, whose confidence falters as she tries to write something "perfect" for Poem in Your Pocket Day and impress a visiting poet. G. Brian Karas's accessible, adorable illustrations add to the fun.

Includes a list of Mr. Tiffin's tips for celebrating Poem in Your Pocket Day.

"A nimble introduction to poetry as well as a sensitive look at the perils of perfectionism." --The New York Times

"Pair this book with the works of Shel Silverstein, Paul B. Janeczko, Jack Prelutsky, Douglas Florian, or Robert Louis Stevenson." --School Library Journal, Starred
