A poem for Peter by Andrea David Pinkney illustrated by Steve Johnson and Lou Fancher is a B picture book. In this poem book you‘ll learn about perseverance and Keats dreams. The book talks about his dreams and how it would get deferred before he could try to pursue them. I think this would be good for AS. EL-4 Link lesson topic to students‘ prior knowledge UDL- 2.3 support decoding of text, mathematical notation, and symbols

farynantenucci I really like the resource you attached and this book seems very unique! I‘ll have to check it out soon. 4y
