Wonderful poem book with suggestions to get your kids reading!
The below is the summary and study after reading about the article, "How poetry can help kids develop reading skills by Ally Bush".
Reading poetry helps children about voice, pitch, volume, and inflection. While these are mainly functions of speech, they’re also incredibly important for children learning to read. Poetry can teach young readers about speech patterns, which can give them cues to the words on a page.
Like any form of reading, poetry can introduce children to new words. Poetry is unique in that it typically follows a rhythm. When children read sentences and phrases that have a cadence, it introduces them to new words in new contexts. Children have wonderful, active imaginations. Poetry can help children tap into their creativity by encouraging them to think about the new and unexpected relationships between words. In addition, having young readers try to write poetry can improve their literacy skills.
The wonderful thing about poetry is that it’s subjective. Poetry can have a narrative structure, nonlinear structure, or even just be a collection of your favorite words.
One of the seven most important skills for promoting literacy is supporting oral development. Reading poetry aloud, just like reading other genres aloud, can help children improve their literacy skills. When kids read aloud, they think more deeply about the sound of the words they’re saying and therefore improve their reading skills.
Here is the suggestions the poem book to read for your kids!
I am a Story by Dan Yaccarino
A story is the telling of an event, either true or fictional, in such a way that the listener experiences or learns something just by the fact that they heard the story. A story is a means of transferring information, experience, attitude or point of view. Every story has a teller and a listener. The story is who did what.
why is the story important?
Stories let us share information in a way that creates an emotional connection. It helps us to understand that information and each other, and it makes the information memorable. Because stories create an emotional connection, we can gain a deeper understanding of other people's experiences and their backgrounds.
It is very important to teach children what a story is and why it is important, especially for children, at a time when they need to express their experiences, feelings and thoughts well. I stumbled upon a good book in the library that can tell children what a story is.
Here is a book, named "I am a story", and the author is Dan Yaccarino who is an american author, illustrator, and television producer. He is famous for his animated series, children's books and award-winning imagery.
Defining and explaining to children what the story is would be very vague. Perhaps if you try to tell them the dictionary meaning, you will have to see them yawn.
Rather, it is helpful to show the picture below. That's what we always do at campfires. Although they are different in shape and type, they are always with us.
And it shows the form of various kinds of stories in historical chronological order in an easy-to-understand manner.
Through the picture below, I could tell my child how the storage of the story has changed due to the development of printing technology.
The story is not a difficult concept. As natural as air, as natural as water. And it provides a lot of fun just like we do watching a show or watching a movie.
In the scene below, my daughter is confused. Because she doesn't know much about the Cultural Revolution. My book-loving kid doesn't quite understand the time when all the books were burned. I explained the Cultural Revolution and taught me the value of books and stories.
And stories can show that it has a political power.
And in modern times, stories show us in what form they are all around us.
The story is one, two, three.
A boxer's outstretched fist is usually a jab, uppercut, or punch. It means three fists and is called one, two, three. If storytelling is about throwing more than the audience expects and knocking them down by emotion, the boxing one, two, three analogy fits.
Normal circles can't do much damage. This is usually a distraction or a light blow. Turo can do some damage. It has the power to stagger, and it also makes the mind hazy. A three is the final blow that ends the game. The metaphor is boxing, which can be a bit off-putting, but it's definitely the heart of the story.
Kind by a book about kindness with treepeas organization.
Today, I would like to introduce a book called. Kind" among children's books.
Most of all, I like the style of the artist who drew the illustrations for this book. Below is a picture of the first page of the book. Everyone has drawn an ideal image of kindness.
This book explains what kindness is and when it is needed with many examples of kindness.
Animals also need kindness and care around them. Animals also expressed the fact that they should show unconditional love and kindness.
The author wants this book to be read not only by children, but also by adults. The content below is good for adults who are self-centered and narcissistic and always want to stand out.
Kindness is needed in all occasions and everywhere, but especially with people who live in a different environment, a different culture, a different country than you do. If they speak different languages, they are curious and try to learn from each other. It is difficult if we are not kind to each other.
And above all, kindness is needed to help refugees or people in need, based on love for humanity.
What should be done if there are people who are forced to become refugees due to a situation such as the Ukrainian War? There are several answers through children's view in this children's book.
We are all worthy. Everyone deserves to be loved and should be respected as a person.
This children's book was published by a group created by women from six different countries named Three peas. That's why it tells you how to get along with people from different countries, different languages and cultures, and what kind of attitude you should have.
As you raise your child, you can see different parenting styles. I see parents who create a small group of them and allow them to play only in their groupmate. Children raised by parents with limited mindsets and philosophies may find it difficult to create a society with children from other countries and languages. This book is a book I would recommend to parents and children living in isolation with a limiting attitude.
The Tree peas are a group of friends from different backgrounds who felt exasperated and upset about the plight of people fleeing war and/or persecution in Syria and other war-torn countries. Together they decided to act to make a difference.
Three Peas was founded in 2016 to support those who have had to leave their lives behind. Unable to go back home, most cannot move forward either. They somehow have to survive while stuck between borders.
Over the years they have established strong partnerships on the ground in Greece.
The snow queen by Vladyslav Yerko
Vladyslav Yerko is as one of the most successful Ukrainian interpreters of the world classics, and acclaimed master of graphic arts Ukrainian Section IBBY highly recommends Vladyslav Yerko for Hans Christian Andersen Award. He has been a member of the National Union of Ukrainian Artists since 1989. Books with illustrations of Vladyslav Yerko were published in 20 countries.
Perhaps, there are not so many people in Ukraine and in the world, who don’t know name of Vladyslav Yerko. “The Snow Queen” with his illustrations is published from Great Britain to South Korea and received a lot of appreciative comments and awards.
The pictures below are some of his works of fairy tales by Danish author Hans Christian Andersen.
As you can see from the picture above, his painting style is very realistic and detailed, and contains images that have a lot of meaning on one screen. Crossing between reality and fantasy, even looking at just one picture, you fall into the illusion that you are reading a book. Children who like to let their imagination run wild will have many dreams for a long time looking at his paintings.
His colorful, exquisite, emotional illustrations attract everyone, who just open his books. The artist does not depict the plot of the text, but fills it with emotions, visual details, thousands of shades and lines.
However, although he was an illustrator who drew such fantastic, mythologically beautiful pictures, when he actually made his paintings known to each publisher, he had to be rejected because of the complexity and numerous details of the paintings.
Perhaps, from the standpoint of a publishing company that prints and sells, they prefer animated pictures that are easy to read and consume rather than artistic pictures like his paintings.
But the reader's eyes were different and accurate. Within just a few years, the Snow Queen, the fairy tale of Andersen's fairy tale with which he painted, made it into the UK Christmas gift wish list. And it wasn't long before his illustrations exploded in popularity, making him the most successful illustrator.
However, he doesn't like appeal as a superstar. He is skeptical of his work and does not like to praise himself and at the same time dislike being criticized.
He said, “I deeply enjoy the process. And what happens later doesn't bother me.”
Until he understood that he had created his own style and found his own right path. Codes and symbols intertwined in the course of a long work, depicting the artist's reflection.
If you are interested in his paintings and want to know more details, the site below will help you. It contains detailed descriptions of his statements, achievements, career and publications, as well as his biography.

The following is a collection of pictures that personally moved me.
Looking at the pictures above, I think it is the most beautiful children's book in the world. I bought it for my daughter because I wanted to keep it personally. When the picture book arrives, I would like to share the contents one by one.
I want a Dog by John Agee.
Mothers have concerns during vacation. It's about what to do with the kids at home all day. Especially on the weekend, the children are very bored and the parents are exhausted.
Most parents with little children have to come up with flashy ideas all the time.
For these parents, the local library is always open. I enjoy taking my children to the library. Especially in summer, when the heat is at its peak, the library is a great place to escape the heat. And the books that are tightly packed in the surrounding bookshelf stimulate intellectual curiosity.
Among the books I read to my child today, the following books stand out. This story tells a fun conversation between a child and an adult who wants to adopt a dog from an animal shelter. Simple and cute illustrations are enough to attract attention.
A girl seeks her perfect pet at a wonderfully unusual animal shelter in this comical read-aloud by the award-winning creator of Life on Mars
The Copley County Animal Shelter has an aardvark, a lizard, a goose, a weasel, and plenty more. But do they have a puppy? The girl with her wagon is ready to adopt a dog--not an aardvark, lizard, or goose! Can the shelter manager help her to find her perfect pet?
The staff bent down to talk to the child is impressive. It's a simple drawing with thick lines, but it's nice to see that a children's book shows that the content takes precedence over the pictures.
This bizarre animal shelter comes in a setting that they don't have dogs, the favorite animal. There is no dog, but the child keeps looking for it. That's why staff keep showing other animals.
And the child repeats over and over again that she does not want it, she only wants a dog.
In the end, the desperate employee comes in with a python around his neck. But the child is not afraid and firmly says no.
Desperate employee tries to deceive the child. Put on Lizard's dog puppet custome and tell him that he is a puppy.
Oh..but the girl is very smart. She recognizes that it is a lizard.
And then he asks boldly. You don't have a dog at all, are you?
The sense of immersion in this book is as natural conversation as flowing water. Angry girl is quick to let go.
Employees want to compromise. So the girl asks what image of a dog she thinks.
I like the scenes below the most in this book. She is talking exactly about children's images of dogs.
The staff listens to everything the child has to say, and then comes with the Lucinda. But oddly enough, the kid is a completely different animal this time, but she doesn't say no.
If you look at the content below, you can see that the girl is accurately aware of the situation. But why did she accept the employee's offer and bring the seal home?
I think anyone who has raised children will understand this scene all too well. Children love to listen and empathize with what they have to say. When the staff asked the girl for an image of a dog, anything must have already been in her mind. You will learn how important empathy and communication are for your child.
It takes a lot of water and fish to raise a seal, and the seal is a very heavy and unwieldy animal, but the girl is rather satisfied.
