Poems tall or short or wideAll are infinite inside.In Gilles Tibo's wonder-filled tribute to poetry, poems bloom in fields, fly on the wings of birds, and float on the foam of the sea. They are written in the dark of night, in the light of happiness, and in the warmth of the writer's heart. Each poem is illustrated with Manon Gauthier's whimsical paper collage art, which is both child-like and sophisticated.Rhymed or unrhymed, regular or irregular, the verses bring not just poems but the very concept of poetry to the level of a child, making them accessible to all. If all the world is a poem, then anyone can be a poet!

AboutAll The World a Poem

2017Best Books for Kids & TeensStarred Selection

2017 Cybils Award: Poetry longlist

Unexpected similes and metaphors help the reader see poems in many ways, linking them to nature, feelings and the joy in life...the emphasis on sensations such as flying and floating, feelings of affection and companionship will bring the poems into relief for the young child hearing them...The poetically quirky spirit of Tibo's text is well served by the playful collage illustrations of Manon Gauthier. The text (sometimes running on an angle across the page) and images are placed in interesting and varied relationships...The illustrations richly reflect the poems' celebration of nature... Quill & Quire

The wide-eyed, button-nosed young poets in Gauthier's collages give this collection much of its appeal. Drawn on paper, cut out, and placed against backdrops filled with scribbled and scumbled textures, the children look at the world, think about poetry, and try writing it....By portraying children as poets, Gauthier (Elliot) presents poetry as something that belongs to everyonenot just grownups. Publishers Weekly

This title fits nicely into any poetry unit for early childhood and primary grades. Ingl3L
