Poetry by the Sea on Sunday

Oops. When I was rounding up the Poetry Friday entries, I forgot to put in one of my own. However, I spotted what sound like grand summer poems elsewhere, at Wild Rose Reader. Elaine M. writes about several books about oceans and sea life: Hotel Deep: Light Verse from Dark Water, a collection of "twenty-one poems about creatures that dwell in the ocean--from moon snails, barnacles, and crayfish to marlins, manatees, and spiny lobsters."

Another Wild Rose Reader post looks at nonfiction titles about tidepools.

Thanks for links to my posts of sea-themed children's books. I've actually had HOTEL DEEP for some time--and just got around to giving it more than a cursory glance. The art really draws you into the poems about animals that inhabit the deep. It's a neat book. I really like THE SEASIDE SWITCH, too, which I just picked up last week. Kudlinski's lyrical text and use of language make this a good book to read aloud.
