Wear Ever Poems

What would your clothes rhyme about if they could? Button Up! by Alice Schertle is a wonderful collection of poems each with a voice as unique as your clothes.
We're Emily's undies
with laces and bows.
Emily shows us
wherever she goes.
How cute is that?! Each character is an accessory worn by a different child-like creature, whether it's Jack's soccer jersey or Emily's undies or Wanda's swimsuit. This could be a great idea for getting your child's creative juices flowing. After reading the poems, have them pick an item of their own and write what they think it would say about them.

Check out this and other great poetry books in the J 811 section of the Children's Room.
