An endearingly silly smart funny book that I simply loved One of the best books I ve ever received as a gift An instant cheerer upper I m sure kids would love it too.

A book of poetry that is silly and fun to read My favourite poem is Grandma s Kisses The writer has good imagine. Summary The Butterfly Jar is wonderful book of poems by Jeff Moss This book has many different types of poems that are not quite related to each other The first poem starts with The Butterfly Jar and then other poems such as Purple, Sword Swallowing and The Banana King The book shares poems for children to simply enjoy They are funny, cute and full of imagination.Response I truly enjoyed the poems in this book They are full of wonderful different silly topics that are simply fun to read Summary The Butterfly Jar is wonderful book of poems by Jeff Moss This book has many different types of poems

simply enjoy They are funny, cute and full of imagination.Response I truly enjoyed the poems in this book They are full of wonderful different silly topics that are simply fun to read My favorite poem was Weddings because I found it to be very different and interesting especially for children I didn t expect this book to have a poem about weddings The poem starts with If you go to a wedding, here s what it means When I was reading the poem it described a standard process that happens at every wedding I felt as if it was coming from a child s perspective, it seemed like a straight forward routine In reality weddings have muchemotion, love and stress In the end it says Then the whole thing is over Weddings are nice pg 63 I thought that was so funny because everything happens and then it s all done when there is so muchto weddings, not just the standard procedures that happen at all weddings.I gave this book three stars because I enjoyed the poems but I think it would beenjoyable if there werecolorful illustrations Some poems were very long and some were very short which I liked It shows the different types of poems that there can be The cover of the book was also not very attractive How a book looks inside and out is important because I believe that helps students beengaged in it.Classroom Connections This book can be used to teach students how to learn rhyming words, writing poems and making them their own I found a great website which gives ideas how to help students get started with poems which is I would start a lesson with poems by teaching students words that rhyme Next I would introduce The Butterfly Jar to my students from which I would read out loud to the class some of the different poems I would discuss the poems with my students I would ask them to tell me what rhyming words they noticed and which poem did they like the best The website explains how to help students choose topics for their poems The important thing is to give them time to think in school and outside of school Teachers should always help students by suggesting topics as well The website also recommended having students practice writing their own poems because thestudents will practice the better they will become at writing poems.I think poetry books can be best used for students to learn what poetry is, what do the poems mean and how to write them.Text Complexity Scholastic.com doesn t provide information on the grade level equivalence, the lexile measure and guided reading It does mention that the interest level is for grades 3 5 Although I believe this book is appropriate for grades 1 and up There should be different lesson plans with some variations depending on the grade level Poetry books can be enjoyed by all students Summary The Butterfly Jar is another silly but yet seriuos collection of poems by Jeff Moss Butterfly Jar offers a variety poems that range from different types of events, people, objects, and experiences Moss uses the collections to decribe childhood adventures and misadventures capturing the humor of children The illustrations are cartoon like but complement each verse form page to page Response Reading these

after reading My Dog Ate My Homework and Butterfly Jars I know there isof a variety These books are a great and fun way to introduce poetry to students I beleive that with this upbeat poetry book, Jeff Moss really hit the humor of children I read this book to my neice and I found that the poems were as much fun for me to read as they were for her Our favorite poem is If The Moon Were MadeOf Cheese It goes like thisIf the moon weremade of cheese, I would reach into th sky for a late night snacking sandwhich of ham and mon on rye I really liked this poetry book because I saw the way my neice was ale to connect with it Classroom Connection Butterfly Jars is a great book to introduce poetry to young readers Because Butterfly Jar includes a variety of poems with a variety of moods and topics, it would be great to use in a English Language Arts Lesson about poetry The students can use the book as an example to write thir own poem Butterfly Jars shows a reader that poems don t always haveto be seriuos or romantic like I use to beleiveText Complexity The Interest level for this book is grade 3 and the GR level is not listed I feel that this book is great for a read a loud with grades 1 2, but for independent reading by 3rd grade The Butterfly Jar is a collaboration of poems that are both humorous and playful to both adults and children Jeff Moss does an outstanding job of writing these poems from a child s perspective just as he did with the classic childrens T.V show Sesame Street The poems are creative, silly, and great for anyone to read at any age The cartoons that go along with each poem are simple yet have a humorous side as well.My response I really enjoyed reading this book of poems I am not really a big f The Butterfly Jar is a collaboration of poems that

this book of poems I am not really a big fan of poetry but children s poetry is definitely an exception My favorite poem was If I find a penny I think adults will also find this book humorous just as much as children will Definitely brings out the child in everyone I think some of the poems contain a message for children to understand which is perfect how Moss portrays it in his silly ways.Classroom Connection This book can be used for a poetry lesson Poetry Month is in April and would be great to incorporate it then The teacher can give a couple of examples from the book or the book can be passed around and each student can read a poem Students can then write their own poem about whatever that please and present to the class I think writing poetry is a great way to brush up on verbs, adjectives, etc The teacher can then hang everyone s work on a bulletin board.According to scholastic.com, this book has an interest level of grades 3 5 I was unable to find the Lexile and Guided Reading levels I think this book could be used for read aloud in 2nd or 3rd grade but could also be read independently in 3rd grade POETRY This book is a book of poems by one of the creators and head writers of Sesame Street All the poems are funny, zany, and quirky in their own way One of the poems titled London Bridge goes London Bridge is falling down, falling down, falling down, London Bridge is falling down,If a bridge in your town was falling down, Would you make up a cute little song about it I hope not My fair lady.That just gives an example of the humor in the poetry

minimal help and appeals to the type of humor of this age group These are pretty typical poems for kids a bit quirky, funny, and serious mixed in together The style and illustrations remind me of Shel Silverstein s, though of course no one can touch Shel s skills as a poet Reading illustrated poetry for children on a Kindle might not have been the best idea ever I suspect that the ideas and poems might flow a bit better when they are presented in print.
