[EAN: 9780811839624], [PU: Chronicle Books], GARDENING, POETRY FOR CHILDREN, VEGETABLES, Children's Non-fiction|Poetry|General, 0811839621 Editorial Reviews From School Library Journal Kindergarten-Grade 6-A bountiful harvest of lyrical poems that expresses delight in the world of nature. It is hard to resist singing such selections as Dainty Doily Dill Weed: Dainty Doily Dill Weed/dances in the breeze,/waving yellow blossoms,/calling to the peas. The poems are easily committed to memory due to their flawless rhythms and storytelling narratives. In Nursery Rhyme, the King of the Beetles and his queen, both wearing armor of golden green, will lose their home when the Rhubarb forest is baked in a pie. In another poem, a sweet but short marriage is arranged between a bee and Sweet Cicely, who laments, '-¦I flower in May,/in June, go away./How could we have enough time?' Havill knows how to craft a lullaby, a lyric to be sung, and a rhyme that begs chanting. Well suited to the charm of the verse, Davenier's pen-and-ink and watercolor illustrations transport readers to the ground level of the garden alongside mice, snails, crickets, and a busy young fairy. The book's arrangement reflects the cyclical movement from season to season. A table of contents offers 20 poems ripe for the picking from this first-choice book.-Teresa Pfeifer, Alfred Zanetti Montessori Magnet School, Springfield, MA Copyright Reed Business Information, a division of Reed Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved. From Booklist K-Gr. 3. As in George Shannon's Busy in the Garden (2006), Havill's collection of verse captures the science and backyard magic of growing things. Some selections are factual, even instructional: "Plant seeds early in the spring / when the ground is warm . . . Let the sun and rain pour down. / Be careful where you hoe." Others are filled with whimsy, as in a poem that suggests how worms navigate underground: "They switch on the light bulb radishes / and crawl in the beams of their glow." Davenier extends the fanciful imagery in scenes of lively, gossiping plants and animals, rendered in her signature watercolor-washed ink sketches. Children may feel puzzled when characters introduced in the poems aren't always pictured on the page, but a miniature, winged girl, who appears on each spread, provides visual continuity and amplifies the sense of enchantment. Fine choices for springtime poetry units, these selections offer excellent opportunities for studying sound, imagery, and poetry's range--from quiet reflections to boisterous chants--throughout the year.
