With My Hands: Poems About Making Things by Amy VanDerwater - ADVISABLE

VanDerwater, Amy Ludwig With My Hands: Poems About MakingThings, pictures by Lou Fancher & Steve Johnson.  PICTURE BOOK.  Clarion (Houghton), 2018.  $18.  9780544313408.

VanDerwater uses a wide variety of poetry styles to celebrate an array of creative arts  and STEM activities.  

I enjoy the short, pithy poems the best, but each poem would be a great launch for an exploration activity.  The illustrations add vibrancy and whimsy to the poems and inspiration for inventions and play.  A good fit for school and home.
