Great Green Children's Literature The Sun in Me: Poems about the Planet
I have always been impressed with any title published by Barefoot Books. The Sun in Me: Poems about the Planet does not disappoint!
Listen to the soothing patter of a summer rainfall, watch the first flames of the rising sun, and sing with the stars as you travel through this enchanting anthology of nature poems. Poems from many different cultures are brought together here to celebrate the beauty and fragility of our lovely Earth.
One of my favorite poems is called "The Song of the Stars" from a Pasamaquoddy Indian song:
We are the stars which sing.
We sing with our light.
We are the birds of fire
We fly across the heaven.
These lovely poems very in length and are sure to inspire your own little poets. It would also be a great project for Earth Day to use this book as a spring board for a classroom set of "poems for the planet".
