How to Write a Poem
How to Write a Poem by Kwame Alexander and Deanna Nikaido

is a lovely, fittingly poetic book meant to inspire creativity and introduce kids to the idea of metaphor? “Begin with a question, Like an acorn waiting for spring”, the book starts, combining the lines of poetry with a gorgeous array of illustrations that mix pencil sketches and colorful collages. The book shows that poetry isn’t something difficult but can arise out of a feeling or an observation that we make every day.
