Description
 
Janiel Wagstaff has done it again!
In Stella, Poet Extraordinaire, she has managed to use all her experience as a teacher and writer to create two engaging characters that help young writers, as well as teachers, discover the joys of poetry. Stella and her teacher, Ms. Merkley, take readers on a journey through the process of writing poetry, from finding inspiration by taking a poetry walk to a final Poetry Jam where all the young poets share their work.


Stella is genuine, making her a perfect mentor for young writers. Initially, she encounters many of the same struggles with writing that teachers often see with students – lack of confidence, confusion, and uncertainty. But with Ms. Merkley’s guidance, Stella is able to work through those difficulties and emerge as a poet extraordinaire. As she says, “I look more closely at things; I linger so I can pick just the right words for what I’m observing, thinking, or feeling; and I discover thoughts I didn’t know I had when I write poems.”

Janiel has a special way of creating books that are must-haves in the writing workshop. Both teachers and students will embrace Stella and Ms. Merkley as their personal writing mentors, and will soon find themselves hooked on poetry, too. (K-2) 32 pp.
