TeacherDance is the blog of Round 2 poetry judge Linda Baie–a teacher, mother, grandmother, and literacy coach in Denver, Colorado. She's our featured reviewer of the day, and she blogs about–of course–poetry, frequently participating in Poetry Friday. Fun fact: she provides a helpful list of her favorite read-aloud titles.
In the fall, she reviewed Cybils Poetry finalist Water Sings Blue by Kate Coombs, illustrated by Meilo So, along with several other excellent poetry titles. Water Sings Blue is a tribute to the ocean, accompanied by gorgeous watercolor illustrations. In her review, Linda says:
I love how creative
writers can be when they use real information and write about it so
beautifully. Coombs has written of many
of my own favorites, and adds her own ideas about the sea creatures.
