I liked how along with rhyming, a lot of poems had alliteration.

The sun is so quiet is a bundle of poems about nature and other things. There‘s poems about rainbows, with bright, colorful, and even diverse illustrations on the pages. It has a theme of being yourself in a lot of the poems.

The Sun Is So Quiet | Nikki Giovanni, Ashley Bryan

“Rainbows
If I could climb the mountains
And rest on clouds that float
I'd swim across the clear blue air
To reach my rainbow boat.
My rainbow boat is oh so big
And I could be so tall
As I sit in my captain's chair
The master of it all.“

I'm not sure if I would use this book in my classroom. It honestly didn't really stick out to me as something that would be beneficial for me to use to as a resource to teach. I think I would simply keep this book as a fun read for children who want to look at and enjoy the illustrations.

I enjoyed the poems in this book. Some of them had language that I had to look up because I wasn't sure what it mean't. Other than that, I liked the background story of all of these poems, and I loved the brightness of the illustrations.

This book was just okay to me! It just didn‘t make much sense to me and I felt confused! The pictures were nice though

I thought this was a super beautiful book and it was so easy to read and follow along with. I almost feel like some of the poems could be hard for children to understand.

The Sun Is So Quiet by Nikki Giovanni is a collection of poems. It was written in 1996. I found this collection to be very intriguing. The words flowed so well. There were elements of rhyme but not on every line so it wasn‘t over bearing. The illustrations also really heightened the whole experience of the poems. I also found the subject matter of the poems interesting, it was definitely a beautiful book.

This book was a fantastic read. The poems in this book are all different in style, with some rhyming and others just being descriptive about the content.

I would use this book of poems in my elementary classroom. They are funny and short and simple which the kids will like and be able to understand and talk about. It is a good book to use when introducing poetry to the classroom. It also has beautiful illustrations that are colorful which is good to use in the classroom.
