I Wonder Why by Lois Rock
This was a poem that asked a lot of questions about life and things around us in the world. For example, one page in the book reads; "And why is grass green and the flowers so bright? And how do seeds know they should grow to the light?" This book is a great way to get children to use their imaginations and think about what is around them and how they can use these things to write. Also, I usually do not like reading poetry but I really enjoyed this book and I think that can help teachers present poetry to students who may be reluctant. I thought it was really interesting and I would definitely have it in my classroom.
