Montage: The Book – Created and Edited by Allan Burns

This weekend I am rereading MontageThe Book (2010, 2012, The Haiku Foundation), Created and Edited by Allan Burns.

The Artwork is by Ron Moss, and the Foreword is by Peggy Willis Lyles.  The Book Design is by Red Moon Press (Winchester, VA).

This is a beautiful and unique book about haiku, with many poems and poets.

The Haiku Reading Plan for Grades 3 – 4 is an example of a lesson that features poems from Montage.  The poems are typed in the plan for teachers to use easily, and the plan links to the Montage galleries online.

Jim Kacian is the Editor for The Haiku Foundation Education Resources.
