Color Me a Rhyme: Nature Poems for Young People

With vivid photography by her son, Jane Yolen captures the mood of each color with poems, synonyms and quotes. For example, Orange:  I want to take a bite/out of that sunset sky/letting the orange juices/run down my chin/spitting out the pulp/onto the rocks below. The orange synonyms, apricot, copper, pumpkin, serve as a starting point for students to write their own poems. Jason Stemple‘s sunset sky photo and orange moss inspire would-be poets.
