“Guess Who, Haiku” by Deanna Caswell, is a read-aloud for both younger and older children. Younger children will love guessing who the animals are talking about through these easy poems; older children can be introduced to how haikus are written, and perhaps write one of their own! A note at the end of the book explains haikus and offers suggestions for re-reading the book. A delightful book to share with children, part of the 101 Picture Book Challenge!

“Boo! Haiku” words by Deanna Caswell; pictures by Bob Shea
A witch, a bat, a skeleton, a jack-o’-lantern, a ghost, a black cat, a spider, an owl, and a scarecrow are all hiding in the pages of this clever Halloween-themed book. Deanna Caswell’s playful haiku cleverly hint at the creatures revealed after each turn of the page while Bob Shea’s bright illustrations capture the scary silliness.
