Bookjoy, Wordjoy

(3) K-3 Illustrated by Raul Colón. In this cheerful, inspiring volume, poems celebrate writing, reading, poetry, storytelling, and creativity. In watercolor and Prismacolor pencils, Colón's illustrations depict diverse groups of people and animals enjoying words, books, and imagination. Bits of Spanish throughout the verses add to the multicultural appeal. Author's notes at the beginning and end further encourage young readers to experience "wordjoy" in their own writings.
