The Belly Button of the Moon and Other Summer Poems

Summer came Saturday -
these poems celebrate this special season.
The colorful illustrations splash and spill over
the pages.
Here's a lesson plan that makes use of this
and other seasonal poetry books by Alarcon

My boy's thoughts (prompted and unprompted)
The Belly Button of the Moon
The book is about Spanish and how to translate it for poems.
There is a cow named Mariposa. Mariposa means butterfly in
Spanish. A cow named “Butterfly” is strange. There are some
things of her that look like a butterfly. Is it funny that there was a waterwheel poem on a waterwheel?
Any person who likes to go to Spanish class would like this book.
