delightful twist on poetry readings

I have used these books for years as a way of getting my students to put expression in their reading while exposing them to poetry. Students have delighted in practicing their parts and performing for other students and school staff. Now I can share with them one way of presenting the poems.

The narrators, and there are a few, do excellent presentations of these fun poems. Joyful noise is mostly insect poems, I love the Honey Bee one. I am Phoenix focuses on birds. Listen, enjoy, laugh, listen again, buy the book and read it with someone you love.
