Front Cover
Sterling Publishing Company, Inc., 2009 - Juvenile Nonfiction - 112 pages

Cutting-edge, youthful forms such as rap, hip-hop, and slams have made poetry more popular and relevant than ever. Immersed in Verse nurtures the poet in every child with creative, awe-inspiring ideas: kids can rearrange their favorite poems; start their own poetry workshop; present “open mike night” in the basement; and even record their friends reciting!
