Basho’s Haiku Journeys
Basho was a poet from Japan who lived in the seventeenth century. In this book, Basho’s Haiku Journey by Freeman Ng, with illustrations by Cassandra Rockwood Ghanem, readers are introduced to Basho and his life.
He made five great journeys and wrote about them. Basho was a great poet because he wrote a lot. On his first journey, Basho saw many things. He was a cool man and he made friends on his journeys, like the samurai and the monk. He wanted to see everything he could. He had a few mishaps, mostly with his horse! On his other journeys, he found a little deer fawn and that was my favorite part.
The pictures are so beautiful. He went through mountains and deserts, fire and water. He wrote a lot of haiku. In the back of this book, there’s a description of how to write haiku and we tried it. They are very fun to write! If you want to learn about a very interesting man and about haiku, this is a great book to pick up.
