Poem Runs

Baseball Poems and Paintings

By Douglas Florian; Douglas Florian (Illustrator)

Harcourt Children's Books, Hardcover, 9780547688381, 31pp.

Publication Date: April 3, 2012

From the first pitch to the last out and all nine innings between, Douglas Florian s
collection of baseball poems brings wordplay, wit, and laughter to America s
springtime tradition. Featuring a mean-armed pitcher, a daisy-picking right fielder,
and a lightning-swift base stealer, Poem Runs combines irresistible language and
Florian's signature child-friendly, bold illustration style in this celebration of the magic
of baseball.
