When Green Becomes Tomatoes: Poems for All Seasons

This one is "pretty good". It's nice to have a book of simple poems all dedicated to weather. They are fun to read with preschoolers learning about weather; I also use them with my older girls for handwriting copywork. Aug 12, Rachael rated it really liked it Shelves: Creative and captivating, this collection creates a flurry of images from ice cream to fall leaves, all in short, rhyming meter. A great read aloud. Feb 28, Sam rated it really liked it Shelves: I read the poem, On a Summer Day.

Great book to teach when doing seasons. It was very short and simple, I did not enjoy the rhyme scheme that much, but it personifies the sun, which could be a great way to introduce personification. Nov 18, Amanda rated it it was amazing Shelves: I can definitely see this book being incorporated into my classroom.

Such simple poems that have to do with all kinds of weather. Apr 24, Ta'Mera added it Shelves: This would be awesome if I were teaching the 4 seasons. Apr 15, Kelly Ann rated it liked it Shelves: A short "I Can Read" book with poems purely about weather and the seasons.

My favorite new spring release. A perfect poetry diary complimented by illustrations by Julie Morstad. Morstad is one of today's most magnificent picture book illustrator's. Anyone working with children's literature, illustration and art or has kids-needs this book. It is the best of the best. It's a poetry book for kids.

I liked that there was a variety of poems and that they weren't all rhyming poems. We skipped a few as I didn't want her to lose interest and wanted to end on a high note with it.

Nov 30, Evan rated it it was amazing. I'm not sure I can pick a favorite poem from this collection, they're all that good. Jul 22, Paula rated it it was amazing Shelves: Related to many of these poems of the seasons. Beginning and ending come back together again. Apr 30, Phil Jensen rated it liked it.

Modestly successful poetry recommended for grades 3 and up. The poems that jumped out at me the most were fall ones about leaves, which had a fun rhythm to them. The rest of the book was competent but not distinguished. The beautiful illustrations are playful and evocative- much more so than the poems.

A slightly jarring aspect of the book was the mysterious geography. The poems seem intended to be universal, but region-specific details keep popping up.

For example, Cincinnati has forests and sea Modestly successful poetry recommended for grades 3 and up. For example, Cincinnati has forests and seasons like the ones described in the book, so I got lulled into thinking about Cincinnati through the seasons. Then, out of the blue, the book is describing mountains, which we don't have. I think it would have made for a more consistent reading experience if there was a stated locale probably the Hudson Valley.

I read this in anticipation of the Newberys. Of the four books I have read this season, this is one of the better ones. I am still holding out hope, however, that I will discover a different book with more distinguished traits. View all 3 comments. Sep 03, Tasha added it Shelves: Move through the seasons in this book of superb poetry. Each season is captured in small moments. Spring is shown in a bird singing on a branch, a crocus in snow, gray skies, rain, and red rubber boots. It turns to summer with poems that show that transition. Summer then is swimming, grass, fireflies, tomatoes, stars, and blueberries.

Fall glides in with promises of sweaters, leaves and pumpkins. A bare time leads to snow in winter, snuggling at the fireside, and again a bird on a branch singing Move through the seasons in this book of superb poetry. A bare time leads to snow in winter, snuggling at the fireside, and again a bird on a branch singing in spring. Each poem here is a gem, a glimpse of a moment in a season that captures it so completely.

I know that there are so many books of seasonal poetry! Yet this is one that is worth buying and having and reading and handing to people. It is a book of poetry that is accessible and simple, yet one that speaks beyond what it is saying, just like blueberries are more than their color and the gray skies of spring speak beyond into pure emotion. Her art is simple and yet incredibly beautiful. The colors have real depth to them, the grass is rich in green and yellows, the tomatoes plump with red juiciness, and the water invites readers to dive in too.

The children on the pages are diverse in a way that is effortless and inclusive. One of the best books of poetry I have read in a long time, this one is a seasonal treat too good to miss. Appropriate for ages Jun 18, Nina rated it it was amazing Shelves: Science When Green Becomes Tomatoes is a delightful, poetic form of educating children about the 4 seasons that we experience yearly. He grows concerned as Old Father Oak begins to change, but his mother is sure to ease his mind by telling him about how the tree changes according to th Content Area: He grows concerned as Old Father Oak begins to change, but his mother is sure to ease his mind by telling him about how the tree changes according to the season, taking us on a pleasant journey as both Old Father Oak, Robbie and his mother change through the seasons.

I chose this text because it ties along well with When Green Becomes Tomatoes.

Reason, Season, Lifetime (Poem)

While A Friend For All Seasons provides us with a peek into the cycle of seasons and how they differ, my non-fiction text delves further into each season, providing detailed and insightful information pertaining to these natural occurrences. A Friend For All Seasons is the perfect way to prompt children into wanting to know more about nature and how it works. Therefore, I believe that these books fit perfectly together.

In this case, I would use the strategy of Activating Prior Knowledge. I would prompt my students to utilize their thinking skills by use of brainstorming. A Friend for All Seasons. New York City, NY. Atheneum Books for Young Readers. Dec 10, Kadidja May rated it it was amazing Shelves: I got this as a suprising gift, maybe because I love illustrations, or maybe because I love plants and everything earthy, but most definitely because I love beautiful books.

Though the poems are primariliy meant for children, I find they work for all ages, especially in combination with those lovely illustrations — and they include diverse children, yay! Illustrator Julie Morstad used gouache and pencil crayon, which work wonderfully with all the white space she allowed. The poems breathe and i I got this as a suprising gift, maybe because I love illustrations, or maybe because I love plants and everything earthy, but most definitely because I love beautiful books. The poems breathe and it all gives off that light and airy feeling of standing outside, with a breeze on your face and sunlight peeks through the trees.

It's not deep poetry, but I don't mind that, quite the contrary. It's delightful in its simplicity, and just like throughout the year, you've got special days and you've got ordinary days, and it's the same here too. And still, you can find meaning and sweet imagery: Jun 21, Justina Wemhoff added it Shelves: The possible content-area crossover is most likely science, but it could also be incorporated into language or literature because it is written in poems. At first, I picked this book because I thought that it was about how plants grow, a major core concept in elementary school science.

However, I quickly realized as I was reading it that it was a unique teaching about the seasons through poems. I thought that the fictional pairing was perfect because it is a rhyming concept book.

Weather: Poems for All Seasons by Lee Bennett Hopkins

Not only are the students being exposed to two different teachings about the seasons, they are also being exposed to different kinds of poetic writing. I would use the fiction text to enhance the reading by activating prior knowledge before jumping into the nonfiction text. I would first start by asking them about their experiences with the different seasons.

Then I would read the fictional pairing to see what else they recall about the seasons. Last, I would read the nonfiction book to really delve into the changing of the seasons and what that all entails. I would probably pair this with some sort of lessons about it as well. Teaching with twin texts of fact and fiction. The Reading Teacher, 53 5 , pp. Nov 21, Heidi rated it it was amazing Shelves: I decided to read this book after hearing it praised on Heavy Medal, the School Library Journal blog that discusses the Newbery Medal and its contenders.

I wanted to see if I felt the same as the others who had praised the book. I am very happy to say that I do feel the same way. The book is gorgeous both in language and art. I've rarely seen a book that fits together so beautifully. The poems start with spring, travel through summer and fall, take the reader through winter and back to spring. T I decided to read this book after hearing it praised on Heavy Medal, the School Library Journal blog that discusses the Newbery Medal and its contenders.

Sometimes they walk away. Sometimes they act up and force you to take a stand. What we must realize is that our need has been met, our desire fulfilled; their work is done. The prayer you sent up has been answered and now it is time to move on. They bring you an experience of peace or make you laugh.

They may teach you something you have never done.
