Speaking of winter (that has gone on way too long) and waiting for SPRING, I have to mention this brilliant book.
“Snowman-Cold=Puddle” is another BRILLIANT book written by Laura Purdie Salas. Oh dear readers! She made poetry EQUATIONS!!! These are both creative and brilliant. Yes, I’ve said the word three times and I don’t care.
Laura loves to create her own poetry forms and this one is … genius. See? I can change my adjectives!
This is a seasonal poetry book all about the transition from winter to spring, but it incorporates nonfiction matter, poetry, and equations. I don’t think I’ve EVER seen that done before. AND to make it extra appealing, Micha Archer has illustrated the entire book with gorgeous collage art work. I share one of my favorite spreads (close up of text first) that I had to study a bit before I realized what I was looking at! It “snuck up” on me, if you will.
