(Download Kindle) ò Pablo Neruda: Poet of the People â eBook or E-pub free

Having read Pam Munoz Ryan s The Dreamer, I was familiar with Pablo Neruda s life I appreciated how this story was composed for a younger audience, though it left out some details most adults might thing important What the book doesn t leave out is the spirit of Neruda s work, and I loved the way the illustrations were made of words, both Spanish and English. Pablo Neruda, Poet of the People is a picture book written by Monica Brown and illustrated by Julie Paschkins This story is simply narrated, but with powerful language and word choice The accompanying illustrations add to the story line because they are interwoven with words both in English and in Spanish For example, when he was a teenager, Neftali changed his name to Pablo Neruda and began publishing his poems always writing in green ink The images accompanying this text have his different names making up a leaf, and words like fabula fable , brillando shining , and escriber write making up the surrounding designs It s appropriate that there is so much text making up the images since Pablo Neruda was a lover of words The story follows him from his childhood, to adolescence, to his adult life in Chile It also touches on Neruda s activism, marching for justice on behalf of coal miners rights At the end of the book is an Author s Note giving information on Neruda, his works, awards, and achievements There is also a resources page listing titles of poems, books written about Neruda, and two different websites for further research.I have read different books on Neruda and I found this one to be both engaging and informative The story opens with the sentence, Once there was a little boy named Neftali, who loved wild things wildly and quiet things quietly a beautiful way to begin a story about such an accomplished poet and writer For visual students, they will be engaged by the illustrations and the use of text both Spanish and English to further tell the story The author notes and resources at the end make it a versatile book for both lower elementary students and even middle school students I teach some of Neruda s poems in my seventh grade classroom and I would definitely use this picture book when introducing background information on this poet I think this would also make an effective companion text to The Dreamer, by Pam Munoz Ryan. The illustrations in this one are fascinating I need to go back and just look at the illustrations The story is a simplified look at Neruda s life I can see this being used in conjunction with Beautifully illustrated introduction to the life of the Chilean poet. When I read Pablo Neruda Poet of the People I was able to relate to some of his story In the story, it tells how Pablo Neftali, is his name given at birth grew up having a passion for books and words His father didn t approve of his interest so Pablo had to change his name from Neftali to Pablo when he was a teenager to be able to publish his poems behind his father s back I think this would be a good story for boys and girls of any age who have an interest in books and have dreams of being poets writers or even just have dreams This story encourages students to work towards their goals regardless of their obstacles The illustrations creativity of the words in the book would be very appealing to the students This book was an honor book for the NCTE Orbis Pictus Award for Outstanding Nonfiction for Children. As is the case for many readers, I love books that feature lovers of words, whether they be readers and writers This picture book biography of Chilean poet Pablo Neruda his pen name uses text and illustrations to highlight the life of the boy who became the man who won a Nobel Prize The author uses lines such as who loved wild things wildly and quiet things quietly unpaginated and dolphins playing in the surf and rusty anchors washed ashore unpaginated to bring this observant poet of the people to life Readers will find it easy to leap from his father s train into the forest to look closer at its treasures or walk along the streets of Santiago with Neruda and his poet friends The illustrations, filled with soft greens, blues, and touches of reds, swirl Spanish and English words all around the page, providing a clear visual message of the influence of words and ideas on the young Neftali, and the later influence of his own words on those around him.
