Illustrated Friday: Mural on Second Avenue

Mural on Second Avenue and Other City PoemsAfter an unexpected week off, Illustrated Friday is back! Mural on Second Avenue is subtitled And Other City Poems and is a collection of poems that celebrate the sights, sounds, and experiences of the city.  I love books like this that serve as really accessible gateways to poetry for young readers- most people don't think of poetry when they think of read alouds but I find that kids really enjoy poetry when it's given in appropriate segments.  The illustrations, of course, are top notch, with each spread being vivid, detailed, and incredibly child-friendly.  This was a random grab at the library for me and I'm super excited that I got the chance to check it out.  Happy Friday!
