Write three (3) sentences which describe the Setting of the book. Be sure use descriptive words.: There were many settings because it is a book of many poems. Three examples of the settings are:
1) “Pirate Don Durk of Dowdee” was set on a beach.
2) “drinking fountain” was set near a water fountain.
3) “The Light Hearted Fairy” took place on a rooftop.
List all of the main characters in the book, and share a little bit of information about each character.: My favorite poems were “The Light Hearted Fairy” and “Pirate Don Durk of Dowdee”. In the Light Hearted Fairy, the fairies were the main characters. They liked to slide down roofs. In “Pirate Don Durk of Dowdee”, the main character was Pirate Don Durk of Dowdee. He was a pirate who was very handsome but very wicked.
If there was a problem presented in the book, write three (3) sentences about it. Otherwise, write three sentences about your favorite part of the book.: My favorite thing about the book is that there are lots of different kinds of poems and rhymes. I like that because we can read many in one day.
If there was a problem presented in the book, write three (3) sentences about how the problem was solved. If there was not problem, write three sentences about what you would have liked to have seen in the book that the author did not include.: I would have liked if there were more poems like the “Pirate Don Durk of Dowdee” and more like the “Light Hearted Fairy”. I would like more like them because they were both longer poems but not too long where I felt bored.
How did this book make you feel? Write three (3) sentences describing the feelings you had, when reading the book.: The poems made me feel good. They made me feel good because they were happy poems, not sad poems.
Star Rating: 4
Write three (3) sentences describing why you gave this book this rating.: I gave this book this rating because there were no sad poems that we read and because the ones that we read were very enjoyable, like the “drinking fountain”. Here is that poem:
“When I climb up
To get a drink,
It doesn’t work
The way you’d think.
I turn it up.
The water goes
And hits me right
Upon the nose.
I turn it down
To make it small
And don’t get any
Drink at all.”
