Lemonade & Other Poems Squeezed from a Single Word

Illustrated by: Nancy Doniger
Age Level: 6-9

A short poem made from the word "Lemonade," is difficult to read with letters dropped from the first word. Turn the page, however, and the poem is easily readable: "made/one/ad/added/one/lemon/load/and/one/mom". Squeezing a poem out of one word is fun, playful, and downright clever.
