A kick in the head : an everyday guide to poetic forms by Paul B Janeczko( Book )

In this splendid and playful volume, acclaimed poetry anthologist Paul B. Janeczko and Caldecott Honor illustrator Chris Raschka present lively examples of twenty-nine poetic forms, demonstrating not only the (sometimes bendable) rules of poetry, but also the spirit that brings these forms so wonderfully to life. Featuring formal poems, some familiar and some never before published, from the likes of Eleanor Farjeon (aubade), X.J. Kennedy (elegy), Ogden Nash (couplet), Liz Rosenberg (pantoum), and William Shakespeare, the sonnet king himself, A Kick in the Head perfectly illustrates Robert Frost's maxim that poetry without rules is like a tennis match without a net

The skin I'm in is just a covering. It cannot tell my story. The skin I'm in is just a covering. If you want to know who I am you have got to come inside and open your heart way wide.

Looking beyond skin, going straight to the heart, we find in each other the treasures stored down deep. Learning to cherish those treasures, to be all we imagine ourselves to be, makes us free. Skin Again celebrates this freedom. Like layers of skin, readers will peel away the pages of this visionary work from the creators of Happy to Be Nappy, and inside reveal all that is needed for us to be loving and accepting of one another. bell books is the author of a number of groundbreaking books, including Happy to Be Nappy, an NAACP Image Award Nominee; Homemade Love, a Bank Street College Children's Book of the Year; and Be Boy Buzz.
