GUYKU
GUYKU: A Year of Haiku for Boys | Bob Raczka
14 posts | 6 read
The wind and I play tug-of-war with my new kite. The wind is winning. When youre a guy, nature is one big playgroundno matter what the season. There are puddles to splash in the spring, pine trees to climb in the summer, maple seeds to catch in the fall, and icicles to swordfight with in the winter. Nature also has a way of making a guy appreciate important stufflike how many rocks it takes to dam up a stream, or how much snow equals a day off from school. So what kind of poetry best captures these special moments, at a length that lets guys get right back to tree-climbing and kite-flying? Why, guyku, of course!

I think this would be good to guide students in writing assignment about a memory they have. It might help them hone in and detail something more specific and dive deeper.

Haikus written for boys by a boy. He has wonderful illustrations and relatable events that happen through the year as a young boy.

This would be a great book for kindergarten and 1st grade. This book is very simple and easy for kids to read. Each picture is very simple which kids would like. This book is great for younger kids to read on their own and look at the pictures.

This is a poetry book. This book uses a lot of sensory images. Each image tells a story about what is happening. They only used a couple of colors to keep the book simple to focus on the main idea of the picture.

I always wanted a brother...even if it meant getting splashed!
