A Poem in Your Pocket

Mr. Tiffin's Classroom Series

by Margaret McNamara; G. Brian Karas (Illustrator)

Synopsis

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.
