Dirty Laundry Pile by Paul B Janeczko
Once again I chose a collection of poems. This book was unique in the fact that they chose to tell the poems in different voices or different perspectives such as from an object, animal, or creature, which I really liked and think kids would have a lot of fun with. My favorite happens to be the same as the title in which a pile of laundry is the voice for the poem. I found most of these poems to be really funny. I think this would lead into a great activity of trying to create poems from different perspectives or voice and would be a lot of fun! I would definitely look at this book when doing a unit on poetry or just to read some fun poems and the illustrations are great!
