Wet Cement: A Mix of Concrete Poems, by Bob Raczka
Who says words need to be concrete? This collection shapes poems in surprising and delightful ways.
Concrete poetry is a perennially popular poetic form because they are fun to look at. But by using the arrangement of the words on the page to convey the meaning of the poem, concrete or shape poems are also easy to write!
Wet Cement shows kids how to look at words and poetry in a whole new way.
