Noise: Poems for Two Voices by Paul Fleischman. This slim volume of poems about
the insect world is wonderful! It is written to be read by two voices - sometimes
alternating, sometimes simultaneous. When first reviewing it, I had my husband sit down
with me to read it aloud to our two children. It was so much fun to read along with
another person, especially my husband (we'd never done anything like it before). Then
I read some poems with my son, a beginning reader. What a thrill! (I suppose we were also
doing what's called "choral reading.")
It's a fun way to read and a good
introduction to poems (and to learn about bugs too). Winner of the 1989 Newbery Medal.
Paper, 44 pages.
