Mr. Hopkins was famed in the children’s book world for championing poetry as well as for the sheer volume of his output. Beginning in the late 1960s he published more than 100 anthologies over a half-century. There were volumes on particular subjects, about animals, space, inventions, art, punctuation, the different people youngsters were likely to encounter when they began attending school.

Lee Bennett Hopkins was born in Scranton, Pennsylvania on April 13, 1938. Hopkins' education was rather sporadic, since he often had to care for his younger sister while his mother worked to support the family. As a child, Hopkins read little other than comic books and movie magazines until a teacher inspired in him a love of the theatre and, subsequently, of reading. Though Hopkins did well in his high school English courses, he did not enjoy other subjects and his grades in those were poor.

I am working on designing a year-long poetry project with 3rd graders and after persuing a few books from the local library, this is the one I decided to purchase. It is separated into helpful sections including some short introductions to child-friendly poets, an overview of different poetry forms, and also some ideas for writing projects with the children in the development of their own poetry. This book will be a rich resource in planning out my lessons, and providing some framework for me to use in thinking about what I am trying to teach the children with my focus on poetry.

This was such an amazing book. As a teacher-in-training, after reading this book, I am so excited about teaching a genre that I have so much difficulty with. I wish my elementary school teachers had this book available to them. After the sections talking about how important poetry is in a child's life, the section on biographies are so useful, which have detailed info about some books by that author. The activities didn't seem very interesting. Because I plan to buy this book, I will mainly use it as a buying guide for poetry books for my classroom.
