This collection of poems for Grade 4 provides students with close reading practice. It's a lovely combination-the beauty of nature and the captivating language of poetry. Read the poems in this book to sing with bluebirds, feel the warm glow of summer, chatter with the brook, and float to the ground with the fall leaves. Experience other joys of nature, too. Can you hear the whisper of the words in your heart? That's what is most amazing about poetry. Also included are places to pause and reflect on the text and opportunities to respond to the reading.
