Discover the power of poetry in Theme in Yellow, a simple, modern introduction to Carl Sandburg, featuring an ode to autumn and the joys of Halloween.
I spot the hills
With yellow balls in autumn.
I light the prairie cornfields
Orange and tawny gold clusters
And I am called pumpkins.
In Tatyana Feeney’s beautifully color-illustrated adaptation of Carl Sandburg’s beloved poem, children delight in the sensory and spooky arrival of autumn.
The book also includes a biography and photo of the poet, information about the poem, and resources to learn more about both Carl Sandburg and writing poetry.
"Cheerful hues dominate at first and give way to -Halloween night- appropriate shades of black, but orange and the titular yellow are always present and help emphasize the holiday’s festive atmosphere."
