Joyful Noise: Poems for Two Voices by Paul FleischmanFrom the Newbery Medal-winning author of Seedfolks, Paul Fleischman, Joyful Noise is a collection of irresistible poems that celebrates the insect world.
Funny, sad, loud, and quiet, each of these poems resounds with a booming, boisterous, joyful noise.
The poems resound with the pulse of the cicada and the drone of the honeybee. They can be fully appreciated by an individual reader, but theyre particularly striking when read aloud by two voices, making this an ideal pick for classroom use. Eric Beddows′s vibrant drawings send each insect soaring, spinning, or creeping off the page in its own unique way.
With Joyful Noise, Paul Fleischman created not only a fascinating guide to the insect world but an exultant celebration of life.
Joyful Noise: Poems for Two Voices by Paul Fleischman
Great idea about looking up an audio online of two people reciting the poems. As I was reading it independently, I tried to use different voices to get the effect of the dialogue and interconnectedness. As you can guess, it only gave me a small glimpse of the effect these poems for two voices can have. I'm going to google a clip right now! Joyful Noise by Paul Fleischman is a collection of poems that beautifully articulate the noises, actions, and appearances of the insects around us.
