Poetry Power-School Library Journal

This series focuses on different forms of poetry while giving examples based on specific topics. Starting with a table of contents that shows short sections of varying length and followed by the type of poem, its history, and how the form is used, quoting and citing the authors, such as lines 1-6 of Lewis Carroll’s “Acrostic” poem in Acrostic Poems. Each subject used for the specific type of poem is broken down to show how to research and use creativity to write a new poem. While each section has an example poem, graphics throughout, such as “Tips & Tricks” help guide readers in writing their poem by supplying ideas to the reader. Short paragraphs accompany colorful pictures of a diverse group of children writing and experiencing poetry. The final section discusses how each poetry style is meant to be shared, verbally, ­visually, etc. and that readers should always ask for permission from a caregiver about posting a poem on social media. Although the titles in this series are meant for younger readers, the series breaks down poetry styles in an easy way to spark creativity. The back matter includes a glossary, online resources, and index. VERDICT A simple breakdown of poetry forms for beginning readers and writers.

Cinquain Poems- Booklist

Proving that poetry is more than rhyming couplets, this installment in the Poetry Power series (6 titles) focuses on five-line poems called cinquains—specifically, the American cinquain created by Adelaide Crapsey, which describe a single subject or idea. Straightforward text first gives directions on how to create a cinquain, explaining the part of speech, description, or phrase that
makes up each line. Successive chapters guide students through writing five different cinquain poems with themed prompts (nature, animal, sports, friendship, and gross). Accompanied by relevant stock photos and digital graphics, each chapter offers suggestions and tips, such as using personification to describe a form of nature or drawing inspiration from a pet’s physical traits. A full-page illustrated cinquain makes a handy reference, and a final note gives children ideas for sharing their poems.
