The PoetryTagTime Trio

Pomelo? Think “big grapefruit.” Pomelo Books? Think “BIG poetry books!”


The Poetry Friday Anthology series weighs as much as three pomelos. Each edition, K-5 and Middle School (6-8), contains more than 280 pages of original poems as and Take 5! teaching tips for each poem that are tied to the Common Core and the Texas TEKS. These books are, pound-for-pound, the best poetry deals around.


Some other books that we think are pretty big deals: The PoetryTagTime Trio (PoetryTagTime, P*TAG, and Gift Tag). These e-books aren’t big in size, but they are huge in concept: they’re the first-ever e-anthologies of original poetry for children and teens. As our students would say: S-W-E-E-T!


But what makes a pomelo most special isn’t its size or its sweetness. In Cantonese the word for pomelo (bo-look) sounds like the words for Prosperity and Status. In English, the word pomelo sounds like, well, a poem(elo). Chinese people think that a pomelo brings continuous prosperity and status into the home and we’d like to think that Pomelo Books will bring “continuous in-print status” to our favorite poems. And enough prosperity to allow us to make our dream come true: to produce 2-3 quality poetry books each year, books that will pucker your lips, reduce cholesterol, cure scurvy, curb global warming, and make young people happy while teaching them lots.

The Poetry Friday Anthology

The Poetry Friday Anthology offers a set of 36 poems for each grade level (a poem-a-week for the 9 months of the typical school year), for K-5 or Middle School (6-8).


The Poetry Friday Anthology makes it easy for you to take 5 minutes every Friday to share a poem. Explore a poem, connecting it with children's lives and capitalizing on a teachable moment. Pausing to share a poem—and reinforce a language skill—on Poetry Friday is a simple and effective way to infuse poetry into your current teaching practice.
