Mirror Mirror

Singer, M. (2010). Mirror, mirror. NY: Dutton.

Mirror mirror is a book of poems by different fairy tale characters. Each poem is read backwards and forewards to change the meaning of it.

I would use this book to teach poetry and how it doesn’t always have to rhyme. I would have students read the poems and talk about their rhyme, lack of rhyme, and rhythms. I would also have them compare and contrast the paired poems. (ELA TEK 2.7 Students understand, make inferences and draw conclusions about the structure and elements of poetry and provide evidence from text to support their understanding. Students are expected to describe how rhyme, rhythm, and repetition interact to create images in poetry.)
