Did You Hear What I Heard?: Poems About School

(2) K-3 Illustrated by Patrice Barton. Thirty-five poems cover the school year, from "Bus Stop" to "Sing a Song of Summer," with lots of everyday experiences in between. Winters's poems are short, mostly upbeat, and funny, and she playfully uses punctuation and capitalization for emphasis and to create pauses. Barton's digital pictures feature exuberant and active children who seem to be around first grade–age, with a range of skin colors and ethnicities.
