    7. I read this book the other day and it immediately made me think of activities I did when I was learning about poetry Florian writes this book with amazing language, using elements of personification on nearly every page The illustrations are simple yet still very pretty, and even used to give life to specific words For example, she writes sled while making it look like a little hill The illustrations make her wonderfully written poems come to life on the pages, and make reading poetry easy and e [...]

    9. This collection is awesome I d love to share this with a classroom in the wintertime There are two fun shaped poems, one about sledding and one about snowflakes, and a cute very short concrete poem about ice skating Winter Time sums up the seasons in a brief but effective poem The metaphors in Icicles are memorable I love how in The Winter Tree the tree dreams of animals, children, picnics, and leaves and leaves and leaves and leaves Every poem could be dissected for imagery, alliteration, metap [...]

Poems touching on every winter topic imaginable, this book brings the magic and frustrations of winter to life From the fun of sledding, to the personification of snowmen, to the strangeness of the weather, these poems describe the activities available in the winter as well as describe the magic of sitting in front of the fireplace and of racing to go sledding.Grade 1st Grade to 3rd GradeTopic Snow, Winter, Seasons, Nature


    12. Winter Eyes is an educational book that can be for all elementary students It is a book of winter poems that uses senses Feeling the chill of winter, seeing white, hearing wind, and it also teaches about the differece of hot and cold Hot being summer and cold is winter It is an informational book that can be used for teaching the season, while incorporating poetry Also, it can be used when talking about senses.


    13. Small, quiet poems and pictures capture how winter feels to a small child, from sloppy slush to grumpy sun, and the wind that hustles rusty leaves along The short rhyming lines are clear and will be easy to read aloud, and the softly toned watercolor and colored pencil pictures show snowy winter scenes, some realistic, some playful.


    14. I loved this book of children s poems It covered everything from poems about loving winter, to poems about hating winter It had poems for every aspect of winter It was so warm and inviting The pictures are great and it ultimately made me a little sad that winter is coming to an end Loved it


    15. My favorite collection of winter poems Before we read the poems What I love about winter and What I hate about winter , I have students think of things that they associate with winter and sort these into two lists good things and bad things.


    16. Nice descriptive poems and child pleasing illustrations Great for preschoolers and up My preschoolers actually loved this book I think their favorite poem and illustration was the one about icicles I won t spoil it it s pretty fun.





    17. Playful poems on the experience of winter a somewhat rural, nostalgic view of winter in the north possibly Canada or Minnesota.
