A Poke In The Eye, a collection of concrete poems selected by Paul B. Janeczko and illustrated by Chris Raschka, is a delight. You may know concrete poems as shape poems—poems where the words or letters of the poem are placed in a particular pattern that echoes the content. This book is a playful introduction to poetry with simple but amazing illustrations. A torn piece of patterned paper with a few brush strokes becomes a fish or a twirling child. I would definitely try writing concrete poems with children and providing paper, paint and glue to try Chris's style of illustration.
