    A solid book about teaching poetry, especially good for those who have never taught poetry before and feel anxious about it. Thought the book seems aimed at teaching younger children, I think many of these assignments could be modified for any age group. If you already do teach poetry and feel comfortable doing so, this is still a nice source for some new ideas. I especially like the pedagogical approaches that are brought up, in terms of how to present the material.

    I found this book to be really helpful because it gives so many writing prompts and activities. It also provides tons of examples to go along with each. It's a great resource for teachers, but at the same time I think it's interesting enough to be enjoyed by anyone who like children or poetry or both even if they're not a teacher.
