Seeds, Bees, Butterflies and More! Poems for Two Voices

written by Carole Gerber
illustrated by Eugene Yelchin

Ages: 4-7 years (approximately grades preschool – 1)

It’s April and spring is finally here! Did you know that April is National Poetry Month? If your reader loves spring and poems as much as I do, they will go bananas for Seeds, Bees, Butterflies, and More! Poems of all different rhyme schemes and meters describe many of the things you will find in spring: bugs, flowers, weather, and more! Hey, that sure does sound familiar…

Each poem is accompanied by a lively, cheerful illustration, which really brings the poems' action and the information they convey to life. But it’s not just the spring poems or illustrations that make this read so special. Each poem is written specifically for two readers, printed in two colors that correspond with the person who should be reading, alternating between lines, stanzas, and sometimes words. At times, the two voices will read together, creating the perfect environment for sharing this book with beginning or strong readers alike. Together, readers will organically learn about the cadence of speech and rhythm of poetry. Seeds, Bees, Butterflies, and More! can be enjoyed by the whole family, but is best suited for readers ages four to seven.
