Poem-Mobiles

Poem-Mobiles: Crazy Car Poems
Written by J. Patrick Lewis and Douglas Florian
Illustrated by Jeremy Holmes

What if your hot dog lunch could transform into a car that would take you magical places? In Poem-Mobiles, such things do happen- thanks to the silly rhymes of J. Patrick Lewis and Douglas Florian, and the incredible illustrations of Jeremy Holmes. Anything can be turned into a car, including a bunch of balloons or a shoe. The poems are fun and encourage imagination. There are even little lessons tucked in; in the poem about a caterpillar cab, there are drawings of the stages of caterpillar to butterfly. From cover to cover this is a visual and literary treat.

Happy National Poetry Month!
