Title: Treasury for all Seasons
Bibliographic information: Andrews, J. & Hamilton, E. (2012). Treasury for all Seasons. New York: Little, Brown and Company.
Brief annotation: This is a collection of poetry that spans an entire year. Their are poems that cover every month and some of the major events that happen in that month. There are also poems to celebrate individual events in life, like birthdays and coming of age.
Grade: K – 6th Grade – I thought that this book would cover all grades. It could be used to read aloud for younger students to celebrate the different seasons, but it could also be used by older students to learn different types of poetry.
Readers who will like this: Readers who enjoy poetry of any kind will enjoy this book.
Rating: 4 – I really enjoyed this story. I liked that it showed that you should reach for you goals no matter how crazy people may think they are.
Questions: What is is your favorite holiday and how do you celebrate it?
Learning strategy: I chose a gallery show for this book. Students will write their own poems about a family tradition and students will have a gallery show to read everyone’s works.
