In following the prompt given by my good friend Morgan of Booknvolume, I have written my very first ever Haiku. The prompt Where Fantasy is More than What it Seems is taken from one of Morgan’s poems (http://booknvolume.com/2014/08/22/where-fantasy-is-more/). Given the prompt and two fantasy images, her followers were charged with writing a poem or short story.
Winter snow princess
Grasps all that is Earthly
In protective arms
Nymph of the blue depths
Whirling about, beauteous

Hi, Koo! A Year of Seasons by Jon J. Muth is an enchanting picture book featuring a darling panda, Koo. The story is told through a series of Haiku. Each Haiku highlights a letter of the alphabet by capitalizing a word within the Haiku, and so from page one A = Autumn to the last Z = Zero. Beautifully illustrated by the author with colorful story pictures, Hi, Koo! is sure to delight young children (and their parents).
I absolutely loved this book. It is positively one of the best books I’ve read for young children. The innovative way of introducing the alphabet was a break from the traditional ABC book.
I fell in love with the panda Koo from the very first time I saw him on the cover of this book. Check it out.
