- Activity: Finding Poetry
Daniel wants to solve a mystery. What is poetry? He can read the sign that says, “Poetry in the Park,” but now he needs to figure out what that means. In this story, we follow Daniel as he takes us on a week-long mission through the park to ask every creature he comes upon.
The colors and pictures in this story are poetic in themselves. They are done in collage-style and filled with all of the sun-drenched colors of nature. The gorgeous colors grace every inch of each page with barely a white speck to be seen.
As an added gift, the author gives us a glimpse into the natural habit of each animal and insect that inhabits the park. Children will hear the sequence of the days of the week as we follow Daniel from Monday to Sunday trying to solve this mystery.
To our great relief, Daniel finds the answer to his question just in time for Poetry in the Park on Sunday night!
