Each of the thirteen poems in this book is filled with wonder and geographic exploration. No city too far, no dream too big, young readers will learn about places near and far, and some they may never even have heard of! Using rhyming, alliteration, figurative language, and different poetic forms, children will not only be exposed to the wonderful art of poetry, but the practicality of geography as well. Visiting places such as Da Nang, Schenectady, Kalamazoo, and Barcelona, children will travel through these wonderfully illustrated poems and learn so many new facts along the way.

Once upon a time in 1977...Rachelle Cracchiolo started Teacher Created Materials with a friend and fellow teacher. Both were eager to share their ideas and passion for education with other classroom leaders. What began as a hobby, selling lesson plans to local stores, became a part-time job after a full day of teaching, and eventually blossomed into a nonstop opportunity to develop and grow Teacher Created Materials as a full-service company, and a welcome and familiar name in every classroom. The story continued in 2004 with the launch of Shell Education and the introduction of professional resources and classroom application books designed to support Teacher Created Materials curriculum resources. Today, Teacher Created Materials is one of the most recognized names in educational publishing around the world...and the story continues educationally ever after.
