"When Bees Flew in for Breakfast" - a bookwrap

I love poetry but I must admit a lot of it just doesn't speak to me.  I remember those groovy dudes with shades and a bongo drum between their knees tapping away a beat to utterly meaningless words that poured forth incessantly from their lips.  Very few of their ramblings pierced my heart unfortunately. Today's book will restore your faith in poetry once again and leave you asking for more...


"When Bees Flew in for Breakfast"
Forty original poems for teenage readers

Created by Nigel Tetley

Ages 11-16

About the book...

Want to get your young person to read, appreciate, and yes, even love poetry? This is the book to place in their hands.  This wonderful book will inspire and open a pathway for them to discover ideas and stories captured in rhyme.  The poems the author has penned range from silly, using playful and witty words, to provocative, inciting you to think and work through the words on the written pages before you.

I really enjoyed the poems within from cover to cover.  I read it all in one go because the next title intrigued me so much I just had to read on and discover what the poem was all about.  That's always a very good thing isn't it?  To be able to do that with a poetry book is quite remarkable. 

This is a book that I am sure every teen (and adult) will love to read, especially reluctant readers and those not yet sold on poetry. I myself have already shared some of the poems with family and friends and have gone back and re-read others just for my own personal enjoyment.  I highly recommend this book and I am so glad I got a chance to review it.   I am now a "When the "Bees" Flew in for Breakfast"KEEPER!"
