From the author of the incredibly inventive Lemonade: And Other Poems Squeezed from a Single Word comes another clever collection that shows kids how to look at words and poetry in a whole new way"--

Wet Cement: a Mix of Concrete Poems

by AnchorageSchools (WorldCat user published 2016-11-19) Excellent Permalink

Though slim and printed in black and white, the book of poetry delights the reader. Reading some is a puzzle, while others are immediately clear. And excellent and fun addition to the poetry section.
