Out of Wonder: Poems Celebrating Poets Kindle Edition
A Newbery Medalist and a Caldecott Honoree offer a glorious, lyrical ode to poets who have sparked a sense of wonder.
Out of gratitude for the poet’s art form, Newbery Award–winning author and poet Kwame Alexander, along with Chris Colderley and Marjory Wentworth, present original poems that pay homage to twenty famed poets who have made the authors’ hearts sing and their minds wonder. Stunning mixed-media images by Ekua Holmes, winner of a Caldecott Honor and a John Steptoe New Talent Illustrator Award, complete the celebration and invite the reader to listen, wonder, and perhaps even pick up a pen.

The book is prefaced with words of wisdom and wonder from award-winning poet, Kwame Alexander, who hopes the reader will be inspired and encouraged to explore their own creativity through reading and writing poetry. This will be easy to do as you journey through the pages, delighting in the masterful words penned in brilliance, and as your eyes take in the stunning, colorful mixed media collage that will warm your heart and stir your imagination.
This has so many uses--home, classroom, youth groups, elders, etc--but i will treasure my copy until someone "needs" to borrow it, then buy another!
RECOMMEND for readers of all ages.
