You could certainly use this beautiful book as a mentor text for young writers. Laura Vaccaro Seeger details how this book came to be and her writing thought process in this great blog post: http://forum.teachingbooks.net/?p=9802. I loved the pictures of her journal: they are between a storyboard and a seed journal. You could to use the book and this post for a mini-lesson on choosing topics (how a word can become a topic), seed journals, adjectives (writing color poems), digital writing (storyboarding/illustrations for a short text or poem), Earth Day or an environmental topic.
