This book is beautiful and we really liked that we were able to find a poetry book about where we live! This book celebrates 400 years of Ontario's history through poetry, starting with the Iroquois all the way to 2010 and Toronto's Caribana celebrations.
The book includes historical notes and a fun seek and find, both can be found at the end.
"A park is for all.
The pictographs are sacred.
Pink orchids are too."
The second book I would like to share with you is fun! "Guyku: A Year of Haiku for Boys" is written by Bob Raczka and illustrated by Peter H. Reynolds. You might recognize the illustrator's work from "The Dot" or "Ish". We have enjoyed both of these titles in the past. This poetry book is filled with haikus about a young boy's fun in nature. Organized by seasons, the author shares some of of his own experiences when he was a boy or about something he saw his own sons do.
