Reverso poems…I had never heard of such till I started reading Mirror Mirror. These type of poems can be read from top to bottom and then from the bottom line to the top line, each with a different tone and perspective.
This children’s poetry book is based on fairy tales, such as Little Red Riding Hood,Rapunzel, Sleeping Beauty, the Ugly Duckling and many more. You won’t believe how wonderfully written and animated each fairy tale reverso poem is until you read the book yourself. The pictures are dynamic and colorful to add to the well written literature. She has another book of fairy tale reverso poems called Follow Follow.
