    1. As a literacy Coach, I am constantly being told about and asked for resources that will address specific components of reading.It saddens and frustrates me when awesome books like this one are overlooked while dry/mundane/BORING "fluency" programs are being passed around and sucked up like pixie sticks at a pre-schoolers birthday party. These poems are soooooo cool and interesting and fun. You can not help but to sound great as a readers when performing them with a parner. One of my favorite mom [...]

    3. 3.5 out of 5Paul Fleischman’s poems about the (extra)ordinary lives of various insects throughout the seasons (beginning with spring) are funny, smart, playful, evocative, AND informational. Bonus points: these poems are meant to be read by two voices simultaneously, so grab a friend and enjoy! If the poems are read as intended, you can literally hear the joyful cacophony of the buzzing, chirping grass field.Eric Beddows’s humorous and detailed black-and-white pencil illustrations are equall [...]

    4. Paul Fliechman's book Joyful Noise is a collection of poems meant to be read by two voices. The collection of poems focuses on the theme of insects such as digger wasps, honey bees, and fireflies. Each poem is describes the life of the particular insect through creative rhythm. I enjoyed this book. Although I read it in my head, using my imagination to predict how the author envisioned the two voices to read the poems, I found each poem lively. If performed appropriately, I can almost guarantee [...]

    5. "Joyful Noise: Poems for Two Voices," is a Newbery Medal winning collection of poems written by Paul Fleischman. This whimsical compilation of verses that are designed to be read to two readers simultaneously, tells about the characteristics and activities of several interesting insects. The illustrations by Eric Beddows are beautiful pencil drawings that present the various characters soaring, spinning, and creeping amongst the pages.I rated the book with 4 stars because it was a delightful cha [...]

    6. POETRY CATEGORYThis is a group of poems about insects, meant to be read aloud by two readers. I thought that sounded quite fun, and even began to imagine using this book in the classroom. Until I actually tried it out. My husband and I read some, a sixteen-year-old friend read a few with me. And we were all terribly bored; I had to insist we read them all. The writing is simply not even interesting. My husband called it "apathetic melodrama." I've rarely been more happy for a book to be done.To [...]

    7. I haven't read these poems since I was in college, and I love them! I am in awe at the cleverness of Fleischman, to write for two voices. You can practically hear both voices in your head as you read them. I also listened to them on CD and that was a great thing, as well. This is some good poetry!

    8. Picked this up in my quest to read more Newbery winners. Also, I needed a poetry book for my reading challenge.I am not much of a poetry person, generally, but I really enjoyed this book. The poems are thoughtful and clever and I'm sure they sound awesome read aloud.

    9. How clever this book is! Have you ever read a book in tandem with another reader? I begged my family to read Fleischman's Joyful Noise with me! Yes, to begin with it was a struggle, but once we got going -- how cool! This book is a collection of poems about insects. They come alive through the masterfully paired and unpaired reading of the poem designed for two voices. The fireflies: flitting, flickering, flashing glimmering, gleaming, glowing insect calligraphers come to life as the poem is rea [...]

    10. Read Aloud 10 yrs + Independent Reader 14 yrs + Worldview - Universally AcceptableReview This delightful poetry book is followed by Paul Fleishman’s later book I am Phoenix. The poems are written to be read by two people at times in unison, at others times taking turns. Each poem is a brief and manageable length so that children should have no problem polishing the poem and being able to read it fluidly within one week. The vocabulary included is simple and easy to read, but the skill and rea [...]

    11. Summary: This was a book of poems about insects. It talks about how they are related and involved in the lives of humans. It has many insects such as fireflies, moths, and grasshoppers. Evaluation: I thought this book was a cool look into how you can imagine insects' lives. My favorite insects were the book lice. The book lice talked about different parts of the book and genres they "ate."Teaching Idea: In my 4th grade placement, we worked on connections. Text-to-Text, Text-to-Self, and Text-to- [...]

    12. “Poetry is the opening and closing of a door, leaving those who look through to guess about what is seen during the moment.” -Carl SandburgI strongly believe that poetry is to be read aloud and not in silence and solitude. Paul Freishman’s Joyful Noise is created for this type of reading. The book is laid out so that two people can read through the poem together, there is no poem in this book that is made for one person to read silently by themselves. On each page the stanzas have been bro [...]

    13. "Book lice! / We are book lice!"It is always a "joyful noise" when I hear my three year old son recite lines from the chapter books we read together the night before. It's fascinating to hear what sticks in that powerful engine of a brain of his.Paul Fleischman's book of poetry is notorious and for good reason. The "poem for two voices" has been a genre I've used over and over again in my classroom, and I'm pretty sure Fleischman is the creator of this poetic form. I'm pleased to have finally re [...]

    14. Joyful Noise: Poems for Two Voices by Paul Fleischman is a book of poems. This book won the John Newberry medal in 1989. The age group this book is intended for is intermediate. The book is full of poems about insects and is meant to be read by two readers. I listened to the audio version and followed along with the book.I like the two voices together in harmony; I, especially, enjoyed when the lines were in rounds. The rhythm in the reading was expressed well with two voices, but also showed on [...]

    15. Surely one of the most unique of the Newbery Medalists, Joyful Noise is a delightful albeit bizarre selection. The book is written in poems, although not in the normal sense. These poems about insects are designed to be read aloud by two people; if performed by people who really get into it, Fleischman's work comes to life. Some of the selections are delightful to simply read; my favorite was definitely "Book Lice," though I also liked "Honeybees" and "Fireflies." The poems feature beautiful ima [...]

    16. Have you ever sat outside at dusk, far away from the city lights, and soaked in the sounds of nature? The insect serenade is calming, a kind of joyful noise in its own right.Joyful Noise: Poems for Two Voices is a collection of 14 poems about insects - from grasshoppers and fireflies to house crickets and book lice. They are meant to be read simultaneously by "Two Voices" in verse that always compliments and frequently overlaps.I have a daughter who loves to read poetry and we had a great time r [...]

    17. This collection of poetry won the Newbery Award in 1989. It's audience spans from birth to age 18(N-A). Each poem is about a different insect and divided into columns so that it can easily be read by two people.I was immediately drawn to the idea of two people reciting a poem together. I thought it might be something fun to do with my 3 year old, and, with that in mind decided to review this book. The collection is very cohesive. The illustrations, while beautifully detailed do not, in my opinio [...]

    18. Joyful Noise is written for two voices-- sometimes talking together and sometimes talking separately. The collection of poems portray the noises and characteristics of different insects such as grasshoppers, whirligig beetles, and water boatmen. This fun collection of poems can be read in reading to help students with fluency and with reading with expression. Joyful Noise can also be implemented in a science class when learning about insects. Although the poems are not the same as informational [...]

    19. I'm really glad I found this Newbery Award winning poetry book. There are 14 poems celebrating the unique characteristics of insects. According to a note at the beginning of the book, "The following poems were written to be read aloud by two readers at once, one taking the left-hand part, the other taking the right-hand part. The poems should be read from top to bottom, the two parts meshing as in a musical duet. When both readers have lines at the same horizontal level, those lines are to be sp [...]

    20. This is just one of those books that is plain happy. I have dreams about this book. I want to buy it and teach my future children to read with it. I want them to not only learn words, but the music of words with me while reading this book. I want them to feel its rhythm. Because it can't be read properly without two people that are on the same page with each other. And when it's done well, then wow. THAT is a beautiful piece of music. I guess I'm just dreaming that someday when I'm a grandma, th [...]

    21. This is a really beautiful collection of poems. The rhythms bring the insect subjects to life and benefit from being read aloud by two voices. Some, such as Book Lice, are humorous, while others, such as Digger Wasp, which begins "I will never see my children," appeal to our human senses. The lovely imagery Fleischman creates and Beddows's wonderful illustrations work together well to honor these little winged and/or six-legged creatures.

    22. This book is unique in that it is a poetry book about bugs and that it is meant to be read by two people. I thought the bug perspective was unusually playful and at certain times almost sad. Children would have a great time reading this book and it is a good way to teach that poetry is meant to be read out loud.

    23. I read this book with my sister (we're both adults). It was well-written, interesting, and often humorous. The best part for me, though, was laughing out loud as we reached the end of a poem, were tongue twisted by a dissonant verse, or achieved a particularly tricky passage. This book definitely produces joyful noise!!

    24. This book is remarkable. Why is it not in every child's library! The teamwork and chance to dance the words out, makes me smile.

    25. This is a great book to use when studying poetry but really demands to be read aloud by two voices. It just doesn't work as a silent read or done by oneself.

    26. Such a cute book! I love that kids can read these poems together. There is real potential for teaching expression. It's actually quite informative about bugs and insects, too.
