Poet Avis Harley continues her winning combination of poetic forms and bright illustrations in a handsome new collection. For anyone who delights in playing with words, Leap Into Poetry celebrates the world of tiny creatures in this clever array of original poetry. Each letter of the alphabet introduces an insect or a spider along with its corresponding poetry form--from ants to zebra butterflies, from alliteration to zejel. Fledgling poets of all ages will be inspired to try their wings and discover new pleasures in language structure. Brief, intriguing facts about each creature are listed in the back.
