    1 thought on “Boo! Haiku

    1. Night filled with frights/Halloween is coming soon/treat your inner child - (my best shot) - book is MUCH better!

    2. I cannot understand why this book only has 3.4 stars. Haiku can seem too abstract to children but it comes alive in this book in the form of riddles. Great job!

    3. I have been introduced to the beauty of haiku through attending the poetry events at the Rate Center in Crystal Lake. So, I was thrilled to discover this book of haiku for children on the truck of new materials while working at the Library! I had so much fun reading some of the haiku aloud to my coworkers at the Circulation desk :) The illustrations are vibrant and fun. Then, on the last page there is an explanation of haiku. This is one very fun book that left me feeling very happy!

    4. Fun Halloween game of guess the character described by the Haiku with Bob Shea's bright see-it-from-the-back-of-the-room art.

    5. Non-fiction/twin text entry #3:I chose this book because I really like Haiku's and I believe they are good ways for kids to use their brains to get the answers that are not given to them directly. I know this book will be exciting for kids because most kids love Halloween so they will be excited to read this. I think this book is more geared toward upper primary and mid intermediate readers, because of the haiku's it would be difficult for younger children, however, the small vocabulary and sent [...]

    6. In this poetry selection the audience is left to guess what Halloween character is on the next page by the Haiku written on the previous page. The illustrations are bright and vibrant. They kept my attention while reading and made me excited to see what was on the next page. This short story is definitely meant for a younger audience. In my future teaching career I could imagine me reading it to my preschool or kindergarten class and see if they can guess the character on the next page. It’s a [...]

    7. I like the theme of this one, and the use of haiku as a guessing game.I still hate the. laziness? It seems lazy. I don't like that every single page has an identical, word-for-word format. "This ___ has a spooky haiku just for you. [Haiku] Can you guess who from the haiku?"Bob Shea's illustrations are still ace.

    8. Boo Haiku was a fun way to learn how to identify things from pictures and descriptions. Who knew Japanese poetry could be so much fun and educational.

    9. Wonderful fun for Halloween. I love the structure and the bright wonderful illustrations. Perfect for the Pre-K set!

    10. Fun but not quite as fun as Guess Who? Haiku. I do like how there is a little trick with each haiku though (covering the middle line for the ones featured in this book).

    11. A combination haiku and riddle bookI don't think I've seen one of these before. I've never been a huge Halloween fan, though, so maybe I'd be more impressed if I were.

    12. This book has a fun and unique way of educating the young readers on the Haiku form of poetry. My girls enjoyed interacting with the book by guessing which Halloween characters the poems were describing. Overall we truly enjoyed this book. It’s short, interactive, fun and educational.

    13. Reading to review for the Beehive Poetry Long List nominees. This is really cute and would be a fun addition to my Preschool Halloween storytime in a few weeks--maybe in literacy moment. It isn't the most incredibly written thing (and I am OK with that, as I don't often "get" poetry). A fabulous way to introduce K-4 kids to haiku. Cute pictures for that age, too.10/25/17 Opener for my Halloween preschool storytime--and it was PERFECT! The kids loved it. Guessed every one of the haikus. Just the [...]

    14. These picture book is a collection of haikus about different classic Halloween objects and monsters. After each haiku with a thinly veiled illustration below, the reader is invited to guess what the poem describes. It features Bob Shea's simple and bright drawings.

    15. This is a good seasonal read-aloud for younger elementary as well as an intro to and illustration of haiku. I can't see sharing this at a preschool storytime; some of the lines are too abstract although they could probably figure out the Halloween character from the visual hint below each haiku.
