 About the Book 

Ivy in Bloom captures the weariness of a young girl tired of a long winter. I stare out the window, she says on the first spread of brown and gray, looking for birds or flowers / or even warm showers / but I dont see any such thing. But thenMoreIvy in Bloom captures the weariness of a young girl tired of a long winter. I stare out the window, she says on the first spread of brown and gray, looking for birds or flowers / or even warm showers / but I dont see any such thing. But then Spring comes when March is out of breath snow melting to flowery waters and watery flowers spring rose from its wintry rest. And Ivys heart dances with daffodils. As these words also dance across each spread, Ivys world erupts into a riot of color.Ivy in Bloom introduces the poetry of Dickinson, Longfellow, Browning, Wordsworth, Frost and others. Excerpts from their writings, as seen through Ivys eyes, will open up poetry as a way for children to express their own feelings about the changing of seasons. This book includes longer excerpts and brief bios of each author.
