Professor Driscoll will be your guide as you explore the wonderful world of poetry, a fun and exciting place where anything can happen through the magic and power of word. Get ready to visit imaginary lands filled with fascinating creatures like 'Jabberwocks,' or to travel backwards in time over 2,000 years to ancient Greece, or to be transported to far-away place like mountains, meadows, or big city streets.
On the first part of your journey, you'll get to know all the different types of poetry with their weird and wonderful names like lyric, haiku, sonnet, and villanelle. During the second part, you'll get to meet some of the most famous poets of all time. Brilliant men and women such as William Shakespeare, Emily Dickinson, Robert Frost, Maya Angelou, and many more, who have used their imaginations to create all of the wonderful places and people you'll read about in this book.
Best of all, we can listen to the poems being read aloud as we read along on the page. Every time you see the 'Play Track' symbol, you'll know it's time to listen to the CD and hear the poetry come to life. Recommended for ages 8 to 12.
