.:: All The World A Poem by Gilles Tibo and Manon Gauthier
I’ve just discovered this book at my local library and have read it to every kid in my family. It’s a children’s book all about poetry, although it would do well for a lot of adults to read it as well. The writing on each page is a poem in itself, and the idea is that a poem can be about any topic and any style of writing is acceptable. The artwork in the book is done in really cool paper collages and fits the theme so well.
Favorite quote:
“Anything the world can be
in nighttime hush or daytime glee
is poetry.”
As a reader (and a writer), it’s great to see a book that seems to give permission to create, in any form that comes in.
– Brittany
