Squeeze: Poems from a Juicy Universe

Poet Heidi Mordhorst explores the peculiar musings and peak experiences of childhood, squeezing the private adventures we experience into a few juicy words. She shows us how our days are made up of both the sweet and the tart--euphoric bike rides to buy sweets and plans to run away--as well as quirky moments of reverie, such as imagining birds will grow from birdseed. feeling. Jesse Torrey's vibrant photographs make each poem bright as day.

turn off the television and start squeezing!

What a pleasure to enjoy this fabulous book of poetry with your kids! My budding three year old son has memorized already several of the poems simply because we laugh, and act them out and have loads of fun. You can really feel the whimsical spirit of the writer, her sense of humor, her love of life, and just generally her creative way of looking at the world (the pictures too are so yummy!). My only criticism is that at some point the book ends!

Fabulous poetry for kids and parents alike!

I am not generally a huge fan of kids poetry...but I LOVE this volume. The poems have beautiful rhythm, the photography is great and my kids and I have both loved to read them. I should note that my daughter is 6, which is at the young end of the recommended age, and she can't read herself yet, but loves to listen to me read them. I feel like a child again, myself, when I read them as they evoke memories of the simple pleasures of childhood. I might even steal the book to read on my own! One other thing that is nice, each poem is fairly short, so I let my kids peruse the photos and take turns picking poems to read at night....each one takes a minute or less, so they feel involved by picking 4 or 5 each. A great book to help create a poetry lover!

Creative poetry for kids!

As a children's librarian I enthusiastically recommend Squeeze! It's poetic forms will connect children to their own experiences in a very special way. The beautiful photos serve to enhance the words, but it is the words that will have children forming their own pictures. I love this book and plan on sharing it with my young patrons!

Great for pre-teens!

This is a unique book for the pre-teen set - beautiful poems and exquisite photography! I highly recommend it.
