In this audio clip, Jon Scieszka playfully reads selected poems from his book Science Verse (Penguin, 2004). I enjoy his chuckles after each poem, and I love how he incorporates both humor and poetry into the curricular area of science.
Listen to Jon Scieszka read multiple short poems from his book Science Verse. Enjoy!
Here’s a favorite excerpt from the poem “Evolution”:
Your mama is that shape,
And your knuckles always scrape …
‘Cause Grandpa was an ape.
Poetry Friday is hosted at Becky’s Book Reviews this week.
