A noteworthy review of Poetry Party from Children's Bookwatch on March 1, 2015
‘Acrostic Poems’ is a title from the Poetry Party series for young readers and poets which uses text and illustration to define a poem, descriptive acrostics, and story acrostics. After defining and giving examples of acrostic poems, the story inspires young poets to try their hands at a fun style of poetry. A helpful page of Tips for Young Poets helps get the poetry creation process jump started, while a glossary with phonetic pronunciation lists meanings for new words written in colored text. Additional resources such as books and web sites are also included in this fun acrostics poem definition and how to manual. Appealing color illustrations present bold contrast. Other titles from the Poetry Party series for young readers that are also highly recommended include the following: ‘Cinquain Poems’ (9781631436932), ‘Concrete Poems’ (9781631436949), ‘Limericks’ (9781631436963), ‘Narrative Poems’ (9781631436994), ‘Haikus’ (9781631436956), ‘Prose Poems’ (9781631436970), and ‘Rhyming Poems’ (9781631436987). All of these are truly outstanding titles are written by Lisa M. Bolt Simons and illustrated by Kathleen Petelinsek.
