Daniel Finds a Poem

He looks up in surprise when he hears Spider say, "To me, poetry is when morning dew glistens." 

Daniel Finds a Poem  by  Micha Archer is a lovely book about a boy hearing poetry in the park. I love Daniel's expressions of awe, as each animal speaks to him.

Made with oil paint and collage, the illustrations have wrinkles and paper edges so crisp that you have to touch the pages to make sure they're only two-dimensional.
