Boo! Haiku

Reviewed by:

Boo! Haiku is a perfect addition for your Halloween library collection. Familiar Halloween characters are used in this patterned guessing game.  Each page has a new haiku and visual hint.  Flipping the page provides the answer to the poem.
The back of the book provides information about the poetry form of haiku.  The author also suggests revisiting the riddles and covering up the middle line to discover their inherent playfulness.
This book would be a good model for students writing haiku for the first time.
