A poetry collection about water arranged in two parts. The poems in Part One (Water Songs) are humorous & rhythmic as in H20: The recipe/ for water is/ the same as/ its always been/ two parts/ hydrogen/ one part/ oxygen. These playful poems will encourage young readers to wade into Part Two (Deeper Water) which includes A Writing Kind of Day: Each word hits the page/ like a drop in a puddle/ & starts off a tiny circle/ of trembling feeling/ that expands from the source/ & slowly fades away... Essential collection for teachers doing theme units on water or the water cycle. Ralph Fletchers WATER PLANET, like water itself, refreshes & leaves the reader into new ways of feeling & looking. These poems rescue the young from drowning in the sea of mediocre verse, the false metaphors & tired cliches which threaten to become the standard of our time. This is an important collection with its variety of forms & felicitous images. (Myra Cohn Livingston) To order, write to : Arrowhead Books, 3 Gerrish Drive, Durham, NH 03824. Or call 603-868-7145.
