Class set order code: 6728S
This is the poetics book in Level 1 of the MCT language arts curriculum.
The Music of the Hemispheres is Michael’s introduction to poetics for young children. In this beautiful book, which features extraordinary graphics that call attention to the points being made in the text, children learn that the sounds of words are an important component to good writing.
Chapters cover the basics of rhyme, alliteration, meter, stanza, and similes and metaphors. These elements are illustrated through poems by such notable poets as Emily Dickinson, Robert Burns, William Shakespeare, Thomas Hardy, John Keats, William Wordsworth, and Ralph Waldo Emerson, as well as original works by Michael himself. This book is a wonderful way to foster an early appreciation for poetry in children.
As a special feature, this book contains QR codes that link to audio of Michael reading the poems. Please note that the QR codes in the eBook version of this book are inoperable.
NOTE: This book uses color to help illustrate the concepts that are presented. Purchasers will not have a problem using the eBook with a black-and-white eReader, but they will have a more enjoyable experience using a device that displays the eBook in color.
