Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
This robust collection of poems (which follows a 2009 title published for adults) is designed, not unlike a page-a-day calendar, for readers to rip out the poems (each of which get their own page) along a perforated edge to be stuffed into a pocket, taped on a wall, or given to a friend. The selections are divided thematically; Lisa Jarnot's "They Loved Paperclips" inaugurates works about everyday things, and "How Poetry Comes to Me" by Gary Snyder frontlines a section of poems that explore the creative process. Navasky chooses a diverse range of works, and the format encourages integrating poetry into everyday life. Ages 12–up. (Mar.)

    Appropriate poems for kids...

    My daughter admired this book and got it as a Christmas gift. She is in 4th grade and I flipped through the book to see what the selection of poems were used. The author/editor made a good choice using topics kids would find interesting: Nature, food, Seasons etc. The poems were uplifting and light hearted. Very user friendly.

    The books' pages can be ripped out poem by poem for kids to share, put them into their pockets etc. My daughter has no plans to rip the book.

    Overall, it was an interesting find and nice way to introduce poetry outside of school.
