The introduction on the opening pages explains a Japanese poetic form called renga, where several writers take turns contributing haikus to a longer collaborative piece. Accompanied by black and white photos, this collection of haikus, or renga, makes poetical observations about nature in a city setting.

    Wow! This book was not what I thought it would be at all! This Haiku anthology does not look particularly spectacular (don't judge a book and all of that) until it is opened and experienced. The author's note in the beginning is even worth reading, and then sharing with students as you begin to embark on the study of Haiku. Take the time to enjoy the pictures and the words of this sleeper anthology that is surely worth putting in your classroom library! Grades 1-5

    Category (Choice)Found on pg. 241 in the textbookDescription1. Poems have always been admired by many readers. The familiarity of the lines that ryhmn are experinced by many even in young children's literature. However, a new type of poetry has emerged in the U.S as of the 1940's; the Haiku are series of well structured of written feelings that are portrayed through pictures or simply words.

    wide reading for CI 546grade level: late middle to high schoolnre: poetry, haikus along with black & white photographsthemes: city as naturescapehool use: I think this book would be a great teaching tool, not just about using the haiku limitations but about the overall ability of poetry to create images in readers' minds. The pairing with the B&W photographs is quite lovely and a great way to teach how poems can both tell without showing and show without tellingview: A really lovely book [...]

    Not sure if I gave it only a 3 because I don't love poetry. I read this because I was looking for a more grown-up looking picture book to read and found this one recommended. The pictures are of the city and are to supplement the haiku poetry that is written throughout. It is supposed to show beauty and nature in an urban setting. Might work well with a writing poetry unit.

    This book offers an interesting collection of urban haiku (or poems very much like haiku), paired with black and white photographs that help to tell the poem's story. The book is a fairly quick read and it certainly shows how nature can still be an integral part of life in an urban setting. We enjoyed reading this book together.

    Lyrical haiku; very nice sepia photographs

    I really enjoyed the black-and-white photography and accompanying haikus! Very creative and artsy.
