"Petrie leaves no stone unturned, offering endless prompts that will transform poetry writing for younger readers."

- Publishers Weekly


In this follow up to Pet Poems, award-winning Typewriter Rodeo poet Sean Petrie guides kids through a series of interactive lessons to write their own poems about pets (also not just pets). Students use gorgeous animal art and straightforward templates as the basis for their poems, then build onward and outward. For individual or classroom use. Grades 2-6.

The lessons are culled from over a decade of workshops with Typewriter Rodeo-teaching thousands of kids at schools across the country. Includes eight different ways to end poems and hands-on crafts, such as making a Poetry Sword.

Covers most major poetry skills, along with performing, revision, and using AI. Common Core & TEKS aligned.
