Joyful Noise

By Paul Fleischman

Published by Harper Collins, 1989

This book of poems for two voices celebrates the insect world, from the way they look, and feel to the way they sound.  This is a celebration of the creatures that the world often takes for granted.

Great for lovers of insects, but also appropriate in a high elementary or middle school poetry collection for use in the language arts classroom.  Could also supplement a unit in science class on insects.
