Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Sheree Van Vreede
These poems detail the world of situations and experiences that are a part of school: i.e., tardiness, late homework, strange teachers, and the usual fights. Written with careful attention to the language and mindset of an adolescent, this collection captures the essence of what it means to grow up and be a student. Sara Holbrook doesn't paint perfect, idealized kids, but rather, uses real, everyday kids who are full of quirks. She finds a way to celebrate uniqueness and show kids just how "normal" these quirks are.
