Poetry in the Summertime: Days Like This

A poetry pick:

Days Like This: a collection of small poems by Simon James (Candlewick Press, c. 2000)

Days Like This contains a collection of 19 short poems by such authors as Eve Merriam, Ogden Nash, and Charlotte Zolotow. This is a celebration of childhood imagination and experience - from long summer days, exploring as adventurers, sleeping outdoors, to life in the city, and more. There's even a poem about the joy of bouncing! You'll find Days Like This in the picture book section of the library. Enjoy with a child you care about!
