Forest Has a Song

I’m ready for spring, and while I can’t move to a warmer climate or force my tulips to Forest Has a Song cover.pngbloom outside, I can read this lovely book of poems about the forest. Today I heard a pinecone fall (from “Invitation”) are the opening words of the first poem to a book not only inviting us to explore the forest, but to explore poetry in a variety of forms.

These poems are accessible in that lovely simple way that only an expert can create. Amy Ludwig Vanderwater is that poet (you can read many of her poems on The Poem Farm, a must-bookmark site for any elementary teacher because it’s an encyclopedic collection of all her poems) and Robbin Gourley watercolours us through the forest in all seasons.
