Birds on a Wire, or, a Jewel Tray of Stars

Birds on a Wire, or, a Jewel Tray of Stars by Paul B. Janeczko, J. Patrick Lewis, illustrations by Gary Lippincott
Told in an ancient poetic form known as the renga, which means "linked verse," this visually stunning picture book paints a vivid portrait of a day in the life of an American village. Read about one of this book's authors, Paul B. Janeczko, here. Paul says--Got poems? Read one a day. Think of it as a vitamin for your spirit.

...This lovely picture book is an impeccable synthesis of text and image . . . that demands and rewards multiple readings, viewings, and contemplations.
