What Trouper Has to Say About Poetry

Join Author Meg Kearney in this interactive presentation which includes a reading of Trouper; a mini-talk (with slides) about how the book was made and what it was like to work with its illustrator, E.B. Lewis; and an exploration of ideas like rhyme, abstract vs. concrete words, and metaphor. We work together to create fresh metaphors, and children are encouraged to write their own metaphor poem and tell their own stories using the tools discussed. 

Here is Trouper’s Story.
